It should co-exist harmonically with a nature around it. And it should grow as an living organism grows.

This giant is hosting 170 thousand people and doesn’t take much of a space. Interestingly enough to build such a house-city requires less materials than to build a “regular” city for the same amount of people living in it.

Some people think that the 21st century would be a century of the marine cities. It has a sense to it – we better had to call our plantĀ “The Sea” instead of “the Earth (the ground)”. Sea takes over 2/3 of its surface.

To protect people from harmful radiation and the dramatic weather changes it can be built on the Dark Side of the Moon.

How would you support people with air water and food there? This is all can be resolved even at our current technological level. Also people who got used living on the Moon would easier be suited to travel to outer space.

“The End”

So, kids of 1970s. Do you have some brave projects? Haven’t you yet been disappointed by YOUR city of the future?
