. In Case You’ve Missed It A 105-mile-long city will snake through the Saudi desert. Is that a good idea? « JO LEE MAGAZINE

WLIW.org – Newly revealed design concepts show a futuristic walled city — its open interior is enclosed on both sides by a mirrored façade — stretching from the Red Sea eastward across the desert and into a mountain range. Construction has already begun, and Saudi projections call for 1.5 million people to live in The Line by 2030. The unconventional megacity is part of the government’s ambitious Neom development project, which released conceptual videos showing the city’s high walls enclosing trees, gardens and other plant life, nestling communities among work and recreational structures. “The designs revealed today for the city’s vertically layered communities will challenge the traditional flat, and horizontal cities.”
