Inside the Plans to Build a Domed City in Dubai
Chris Weller reports:
Already the home of the world's tallest building, Dubai is slated to become the host of The Mall of the World. Developer Dubai Holdings says the city won't just have a glass-domed, climate-controlled interior, but hundreds of buildings, thousands of hotel rooms, and its own fully functional transit system, the company announced late last year.
To put the scale of the proposal in perspective, consider that the final Mall of the World will take up approximately 48 million square feet of space, Compare that to the Mall of America at 5.6 million square feet. The article includes more speculation and pondering on what the Mall of the World might look and feel like, if it's completed.
