At first glance, the Ab Elis ‘Eco-City 2020’ looks very much like an enormous bomb shelter for the paranoid. Regardless, this architectural oddity is actually an earth-loving undertaking planned for the old Mirniy diamond mine in Eastern Siberia.
As an environmentally friendly solution to reconciling with humanity’s impact on nature, the 2km wide crater will be filled in with forests, farms, community facilities and housing for 100,000. Covered with a transparent dome, the Ab Elis ‘Eco-City 2020’ will be equipped with photovoltaic cells to capitalize on solar power for the space-age metropolis.
