NOAH

NOAH: Mammoth Pyramidal Arcology Designed for New Orleans





Now, a real-life a group of ambitious designers has taken their looming pyramidal arcology and placed it smack dab on the Mississippi River as a proposal for the rebuild of New Orleans which is currently in progress. This 30 million square foot beast-building with an array of green features is aptly named NOAH (Get it? Noah and the Arcology?), and is meant to house 40,000 mostly human residents.


I first encountered the idea of arcologies in none other than Richard Hoagland's "The Monuments of Mars," in which he speculates that the pyramidal features in the vicinity of the iconic "Face" served as vast encapsulated habitats for the "Martians" -- whoever they might have been.





Perhaps the most intriguing such candidate Martian arcology is the "D&M Pyramid," a symmetrical, faceted formation that looks like it could be a heavily eroded artificial structure. Could an extraterrestrial species have constructed the D&M as a refuge from a disintegrating environment?

You need to check out the work of Jacques Fresco, if you haven't already. The man's a genius, though I don't agree totally with everything he says. His designs, however, you can get lost in.

Kama Life Styles said...

Thanks for the nice post. Do you know.. How To Be More Confident A number of men need tips and advice on how to be more confident with women. Women adore confident men who believe in their own abilities and themselves. Kama Lifestyles dating coaching specialises in teaching men how to be confident.It doesn’t depend on personal traits and characteristics, but can be learned by anyone. It does, however, take some work to turn negative thoughts and behaviours into something positive, and no one can do the work but the man who needs to change his attitude.
