Start of the Line.
Well, it’s actually happening. If you’re not familiar with ‘The Line’, then you obviously haven’t been paying attention. It’s part of ‘Neom’, Saudi Arabia’s proposed megacity of the future. To refresh your memory: The Line will be 105 miles long, 500 metres tall, 200 metres wide, will run on 100% renewable energy and have no cars or streets. Oh, and it’ll also have giant mirrored walls that run parallel along its entire length – because why the hell not. Ok, now we’re all caught up. When such an ostensibly ludicrous plan was announced around a month ago, many cynics naturally thought it was little more than a Utopian/Dystopian goof. But, as I said, it’s actually happening. Maybe. It hasn’t been confirmed, but newly released drone footage has revealed something in the Saudi desert that looks an awful lot like the foundations of a futuristic 105-mile-long megacity. Gulp. All architects and engineers of any repute have deemed the plan to be utterly impossible to pull off, but the Saudi government have taken that into consideration and decided to do it anyway. Ballsy. Fair play. This can only end well.Read Original Story
