Ziggurat, the pyramids of the future

Timelinks, a big environmental design company in Dubai will build the future city with the shape of future pyramid. And it will be named as Ziggurat, the name of the temple towers of the ancient Mesopotamian valley. The city will be exhibited at Cityscape Dubai which runs 6-9 October of this year.

This huge pyramid will cover 2.3 square kilometers and will be able to sustain a community of up to 1 million. Timelinks claims that their Ziggurat will be capable of running completely off the grid by utilizing steam, wind, and other natural resources.

Timelinks stress that the project is not just about reducing the carbon footprint. The 2.3 sq km pyramid has many other benefits. They propose that whole cities can be accommodated in complexes which take up less than 10% of the original land surface. Public and private landscaping will be used for leisure pursuits or irrigated as agricultural land.

The concept will also aim at a better quality of life for the inhabitants. Transport throughout the complex would be connected by an integrated 360 degree network (horizontally and vertically) so cars would be redundant. Biometrics would provide security with facial recognition technology.

According to the International Institute for the Urban Environment, the technologies incorporated into the Ziggurat project will make it a viable metropolis, and Timelinks has responded quickly by patenting the design and technology developed for the project. A number of European professors will be on hand at Cityscape Dubai Ziggurat to explain how the project can be incorporated into grander plans, meaning that it may not be a one-off structure.
