25 Revitalizing Chernobyl

Revitalizing Chernobyl

Posted on November 4, 2011 by

Architect Arina Ageeva believes that Chernobyl presents no danger to people anymore, besides, it has not been affected by presence of people, so its condition might have even become better. Arina thinks it can be turned into a touristic zone with its monorail, leading to a ‘Ukrainian Las Vegas’, a new museum, and a natural reserve. Here’s her project. Whould you go there?

    Nice idea!

    I think visiter have to wear hazmat suit, huh?

    • Hirsh says:

      Naw, zone tourists don’t wear hazmat suits even today. Welcome to Ukraine! ;)

      I must say i’d like to tour the place, but as it is.

    they cannot take care of the zoo, where would the money come from? not to mention that just because someone ‘believes’ it would be a good idea and is safe, any construction would impact the soil and release lots of radioactive dust etc. maybe come back in 1000 years and check the soil!

  4. Vladimir Fukov says:

    The pharmaceutical industry approves this project.

    Yeah…chernobyl is harmless…ifyou:
    -don’t grow and eat anything there
    -don’t go picknicking
    -don’t go collecting mushrooms
    -don’t go swimming
    -don’t eat/drink anything out of local bodies of water
    -don’t eat any local animals or hold any animals of your own (they will eat local plants)

    It might also help if you’re older than 50 because the likeliness of cellmutations is lower. Also, don’t burn any wood there, it will disperse the radioactive materials out of the ground directly into the air you breathe.

    Meat from wild boars from southern germany still has to be tested for contamination before eating because they eat mushrooms that absorbed leftover Cesium-137 from chernobyl and thats not even close to chernobyl.

    Yep…totally harmless.

    dream on!

  7. anyad says:

    This would be the real death of the zone. With all that tourists, who will ruin everything, which was untouched for decades. Chernobyl’s rarity is that it’s almost unreachable. Stay on this way.

    • Hirsh says:

      ??? It seems that places within the zone are easily reached by those who want to get in there, and it is hardly untouched at this point. The urban areas are quite heavily disturbed and umm, looted to a degree of metals and such. It is an interesting place for sure, but it is nowhere near pristine and undisturbed at this point.

  8. Jozo says:

    Wow it’s like something from the future! If we had colonies on the moon, that’s what it would look like.

  9. Hirsh says:

    Sorry but i know enough about the zone to know this is a stupid idea. A pipe dream…

  10. marxistworker says:

    Looks disurbanistic…Mikhail Okhitovich lives!

  11. YJ says:

    They should call it slow and painful suicidal resort.

  12. Strielok says:

    Sure it’s just a vision, that won’t be able to be realized in close future. The zone now is really much cleaner than it used to be few years after april ’86 but still there are places that nobody wants to visit, such as red forest. Radiation out there is still dangerous for living creatures.

  13. DicksMcDuck says:

    Get out of here STALKER!!

  14. Maxx says:

    I have heard this several years ago, What I had heard was the idea of a theme park. Stupid idea.

  15. ProudGerman says:

    This place is radioactive and short exposure at best.

  16. Giuseppe says:

    I think that Cernobyl can be used to learn something more. What can we do there? We shouldn’t pollute yet, we can bring the rubbish “very far” from Cernobyl. All these structures can destroy the last memory of a tragedy. The man can’t live there now, and for the next years. Some buildings can bring new deseases at all the people that haven’t common sense. Please, let you think.

  17. Mali says:

    Hopefully this wont happen ! The Zone is a paradise for animals and Nature dont destroy that, AGAIN!

  18. frank says:

    I agree with tourism to the zone, but people are actually attracted by the decay and debris. And nature taking back the place. Don’t turn it into a sterile tourist place.
    I don’t think the place is all that radioactive, animals thrive, some people never left anyway and are still living in isolation there. I have seen readouts from different places around the actual plant and the radiation measured there was quite low, into the microsieverts.

    Lighting would be cheap, the place probably glows in the dark
