A Trillion House: New Residential Complex from Riyadh.
The project is positioned as – no more, no less – an alternative form of life. Until last week, he existed only in the dreams and words of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. But now this “utopia” has acquired a visual form.
Riyadh is investing almost a trillion dollars (and attracting foreign investors – welcome!) to build one of the most unusual buildings in modern history. The residential complex was named The Line and is a building with a height of 500 meters and a width of 200. But most importantly – with a length of 170 kilometers! On the visualization, recently presented to the general public, it looks like two blocks with mirrored walls. It is supposed to move between them by the railway separating the blocks.
No cars and harmful emissions, all eco green standards (up to incorporated vegetable gardens) and entertainment (there will be a stadium on the roof of one of the blocks).
If you are in Jeddah in early August, you can see an exhibition in the Jeddah Superdome dedicated to this miracle of building thought.
(The Line is part of a large-scale state program Neom, in which the kingdom is building its future – on new technologies and a flight of engineering thought).
