The NOAH Arcology is a massive pyramid mega-structure that all-too-excitingly demonstrates how the continuous march of technology and architectural innovation is bringing sci-fi'esque achievements ever closer to the fingertips of human civilization's grasp.

The giant structure is the brainchild of a team of forward-thinking designers and architects who hope the disaster-proof structure will help bring stability and sustainability to New Orleans. Using a floating foundation and a porous and open structure, the NOAH Arcology just might be the answer the city needs to ensure safe, secure and resilient housing for thousands of its residents.
