The Dubai Ziggurat - Eco-Friendly Self-Sustaining Pyramid for 1 Million People!

Dubai seems to always spark the public’s interest with things like the tallest buidling in the world.

Well, here’s another great idea that might make it to production, an eco-friendly self-sustaining pyramid that can house 1 million people.

The size of the pyramid should be huge but shouldn’t be a hard task for Dubaians who are already building the tallest building in the world.

The Mayans and Egyptians constructed incredible feats of architecture able to weather the test of time, but they had no idea their pyramids would inspire the shape of the latest carbon-neutral super-structure to hit Dubai. Dubai-based environmental design firm Timelinks recently released some eye-catching renderings of the gigantic eco pyramid – aptly named Ziggurat – with plans for its official unveiling scheduled for the Cityscape Dubai event which runs October 6-9 of this year. The ginormous pyramid will cover 2.3 square kilometers and will be able to sustain a “community” of up to 1 million.

    Yup, so this is what we’re paying for. That’s a wonderful piece of architecture nonetheless.

    Sorry you are very very wrong. Dubai never had big oil income which is why they switched to banking,manfacturing,tourism. their oil income is only 6% and will keep on going down every year. This country is actually a model of how countries can turn around if you know what you are doing. They are very friendly to other countries and tourists. Please people know what you are talking about before posting.
