World's first climate-controlled domed city to be built in Dubai




Dubai has announced plans to build the first climate-controlled city on the planet. The area, constructed under a huge glass dome, will accommodate the world's largest shopping center, over 100 hotels, and a wellness district for medical tourists.

Now that I would LOVE to see! I can't imagine the engineering it's going to take but they've got the cash to do it.


According to Dubai Holding, the Sheikh's property arm, "tourists will be able to enjoy a week-long stay without the need to leave the City or use a car. The 7 km (4.3 miles) long promenades connecting all facilities will be covered during the summer and open during the winter, ensuring pleasant temperatures throughout the year."

The project will feature the world’s largest mall and indoor park, as well as a theater area and wellness resorts. It will have the capacity to host over 180 million visitors annually.

For tourists huh? Well I guess that makes sense. Not like their lower cast people's would have the money to go there - and keeps all the non Arabs out of their faces. ???

Anyway, I heard something about Google's new Dome Campus slash Greenhouse has been given the stamp of approval also.


The future of work, according to Google, will take place in woodland glades and wildflower meadows, next to trickling streams and verdant allotments, among bike paths and yoga classes and gushing fountains, with fresh produce on tap. It will be a pastoral utopia-with-WiFi, all safely swept beneath a series of gigantic glass tents.


So - here comes the domes! I hope I'm around long enough to see some of them for real.

peace

This was certain to happen. I think it is a Very exciting project and the shape of things to come, pun intended.

I am just so glad our Oil consumption and wars helped buy these domes so they can survive all the environmental catastrophes...

A neighboring town of mine in little ole' Vermont almost had a Dome built around it way back in the 1970s! That's cool they plan to actually do this in our modern era. I used to laugh at the premise of Winooski, Vermont having a dome over it but look who's laughing now Entire Vermont Town Was Almost Covered In A Giant Dome To Stay Warm

Ever watch the Stephen King series that ran on CBS a while back called "The Dome"?

That didn't turn out so well...

Domes, eh? I always figured humankind would eventually wind up underground.

Yeah, I've been thinking about the drawbacks since I started writing the post.

What a prison. A rather nice one but a prison - possibly - none the less.

How cool is that! I lived in S. Strafford for years.

Lil' ol Winooski under a dome - and Steven King living only a we bit north.

Wow.

That happens after the nuclear fallout. We haven't gotten there yet

I will go out on a limb and predict problems ahead for the dome.

Remember the Biosphere 2 experiments?
Biosphere 2

Biosphere 2 was only used twice for its original intended purposes as a closed-system experiment: once from 1991 to 1993, and the second time from March to September 1994. Both attempts, though heavily publicized, ran into problems including low amounts of food and oxygen, die-offs of many animals and plants included in the experiment, squabbling among the resident scientists, and management issues.


Then there was the 'Biodome'....

Countdown until a plane crashes into it has begun.

This is the same reason we can't build Atlantis.

The elite are building themselves a domed city now? Does this make anyone else nervous?

Is this the prototype of the Elysium space station from the movie Elysium?

We need this tech for our survival in the long run.

Now we just need to deserve to survive.

Reminds me of Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy!

Shame it's in Dubai and not somewhere a bit nicer.
