The Shape Of Things To Come

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shimizu_Mega-City_Pyramid

I think Shimizu TRY 2004 Mega-City Pyramid is the future.

perfect for controlling house prices and rents, even now high-rise flats

don't sell, can't get mortgages on them so they're rented forever by local authorities.

No time in history has there ever been 100% owner occupiers.

there will always be people that rent accomadation their entire life.

Small carbon footprint, no need to travel for work or shop. all under one roof.

...and it looks like you're in bladerunner movie too.

interesting concept....kind of a mini corporate city.

residential areas for the workforce on top........and then shopping malls(all tesco's naturally),gymnasium and in-house power plant on the bottom.

Sky City 1000 is a possible future urban super tall skyscraper project aimed at helping put an end to major congestion and lack of greenspace in the Tokyo, Japan metropolitan area.

The plan consists of a building 1,000 metres (3,281 ft) tall and 400 m (1,312 ft) wide at the base, and a total floor area of 8 km2 (3.1 sq mi).[2] The design, proposed in 1989 by Takenaka Corporation, would house between 35,000[2][3] and 36,000[4] full-time residents, as well as 100,000 workers. It comprises 14 concave dish-shaped "Space Plateaus" stacked one upon the other. The interior of the plateaus would contain greenspace, and on the edges, on the sides of the building, would be the apartments. Also included in the building would be offices, commercial facilities, schools, theatres, and other modern amenities.[2]

Without wanting to rain on anyone's parade, from the quoted article:

The proposed structure is so large that it cannot be built with currently available materials, due to their weight. The design relies on the future availability of super-strong lightweight materials based on carbon nanotubes.

So, we might as well have a thread about Space Elevators or hypersonic planes, which are also really cool, but can't be built with our level of technology :)
