Mall of the World

Mall of the World

Introducing the world’s first temperature controlled city! The folks over at Dubai Holding plan to develop this city (yes, actually) that will occupy 48 million square feet that will feature a shopping mall, 100 hotels, a theme park and a medical tourism area not to mention the 7km shopping strip.

You can have a watch of the ~1 minute clip above. The aim of this project is to allow tourists to enjoy a normal city experience for as long as they want at any time of the year.

I thought that’s what the rest of the world does on a day to day, year to year basis. You can probably tell by my tone that this idea doesn’t run well with me. All that energy to power the city, maintenance and money to build. Getting a little too Hunger Games-esque with efforts and costs probably more productive in other causes around the world than this. Only in Dubai.
