"The Line" sounds like a fantastic setting for a science fiction story. It might be too insane to actually build, but a fictional version of it is certainly possible to pull off.. Meanwhile, the Dubai Creek Tower looks like the headquarter of an intergalactic government administration

I refer again to "the line": have you thought about maintenance costs or operating or everyday costs? Cars are no longer necessary in the line. No elevators are necessary or costly facade cleaning. there is no time delay when you are stuck in a traffic jam, because there is no traffic jam. so i think it's crazy to want to build even higher to present your status. In my opinion, it is not crazy, but brave to have an idea that is not just about showing off, but an attempt to find a smart solution to problems of current events and the future. namasté नमस्ते

I once saw a Sim City Let's Play where someone made an entire city using just one road, it did not end well. Turns out making your city completely dependent on one method of transportation with very little to no redundancy is a very bad idea. One disaster could completely cut off the supply chain and severely cripple the city's ability to recover. Looks like the inspiration for "The Line" came from that, and I expect the end results to be the same.

and i ask all game developers to create a game to handle the whole world: -> Spatially based on the flight simulator, with the implementation of a completely networked system that allows business, trading, etc., although you can set your own rules such as: unconditional basic income, or basic care through minimal work to which every citizen is committed (all unemployed (no matter which status you belong to) could do a lot of useful things).... etc. etc. also a dictator mode where the dictator can decide for the good of all people (e.g. true equality of all people) etc. etc. The simulation should be shaped by the users (with "mods" or whatever you want to call it, which should be able to be created in a very simple programming environment), you should be able to register as an individual in every changed world. all other individuals (who would not be "played" by a full-fledged human) would have statistical process values ​​in the background. Since probably 97% of people would play along, the 3% ( could also be interested in what would come out of it without destroying the current state of the art.

There's a reason why cities are shaped similar to a circle, because a circle makes it equidistant from anywhere about a point, where businesses, goods and services can be accessible to many. "The Line" probably will not work because it is counterintuitive to this very reason

The canal reminds me of an 1800s Victorian-era canal project near me that would be possible today if it made sense, but turned out to be impossible at the time and half of the plans were abandoned. The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal was intended to connect the Chesapeake Bay near Washington, D.C. to the Ohio River in Pittsburgh, making a viable water transportation route from the Atlantic coast to the Ohio. However, it ended up starting in downtown Washington D.C. instead and only made it as far as Cumberland, Maryland. This is because scaling the Allegheny Plateau up to Pittsburgh would have required an 8-mile-long tunnel. The half-mile-long Paw Paw Tunnel had already nearly bankrupted the canal company. And what's worse, rail travel was beginning to take over as the dominant transportation means in the United States and the unfinished canal was already becoming obsolete. Though for most of the next century, the section of canal that was built was used to take logs and coal from Appalachia down to the D.C. area, so it ended up not being entirely useless.

Brian O'Connell Yıl önce
On the Dubai Creek Tower, I see one basic flaw in the design: The cables. To make sure they hold up to the stresses of stabilizing a twig thin tower (by comparison), the tower would have to sustain both massive weight pulling it on all sides, as well as its own weight. One stiff breeze would cause it to fall. Instead of using internal steel frames, with the cables you are effectively tripling or quadrupling the weight of the tower, as you would, rather than using traditional means and just building it up from there. Also, it's a horrible waste of space.

@Brian O'Connell reminds of a certain cold war era telescope that recently collapsed. When the first cable snapped, that brief moment where the weight transferred to the backup cables caused enough strain to take down the whole structure.

New York City, which is mostly linear, you can walk from most subway stations to your East/West destination. If it were more constrained it would be completely walkable. But now that I think about it, The Line would not remain linear for very long and construction would spread out in prime locations.

Sugizai Yıl önce
One of the big issues with the Istanbul canal project is that it would require multiple crossings. Road, highway, rail. Otherwise if there are just 1 or 2 main crossings it would create absolutely horrific congestion, especially if long distance trucking is mixed with local commuting. And these bridges wouldn't be cheap. They would need to be built high enough over the seaway so that large ships can pass below them.

In order to serve all inhabitants along the line, the train needs to have stations every 2 or 3 kilometers. But, this prevents it from going full speed, because trains take a long time to accelerate, and before it even reaches its full speed it has to start slowing down as it reaches the next station. When aiming to travel at speeds of 500 km/h, you can't stop every 3 kilometers because that means you don't have enough time to accelerate to your full speed, rendering it impossible to travel the whole thing in 67 minutes. You can only have a station in the beginning and one in the end, but then it loses its purpose because it doesn't serve the people in the middle. There need to be multiple trains, each traveling at different speeds and each having more/less stations, like train systems in Italy. But this already impacts the cost; Japan's magnetic system(the only way a train can reach speeds of 500 km/h) already has a price of 65 billion USD dollars. Add more rails and the price of only the train part of the project will easily surpass 100 billion dollars.

Assuming you have a 170 km stretch where you don’t have to replace anyone, the line still doesn’t sound that bad, of course, crossing it in 20 minutes is imposible but a high speed train could realistically cross it in 1 hour or 1 hour and a half, which it’s just fine for commute times, and having everything at reach from a single transport line makes it easier for everyone to use it

But the train has to stop every few kilometers, so it couldn't be much high speed. Otherwise without stops along the city it will only connect two ends, but what about the majority of people between these two ends? So it would be more like any other metro system, which is not bad, but 170 km would take hours.

Nah, it can't by concept. Cities expand circularly (grow in all directions) because that's the best way to increase value while reducing the distance from any point to any other point (and especially to the center). The line concept is a fun idea, but you throw away immense amounts of value for it which makes it not worth it. Also kinda why other cities aren't built in a line already.

Then hold one string in each hand and try to hold the weight up by pushing your hands away from each other (to the left and right instead of up) and tell me what was harder.

The argument of jobs and economic boost due to the construction itself is an excellent example of the broken window fallacy.
Joxar 9 aylar önce
What's that?
Stanislas Kowalski
Stanislas Kowalski 9 aylar önce
@Joxar The broken window is a metaphor imagined by the French economist Frédéric Bastia to explain some of the most common fallacies in economics. Imagine that a window has been broken. You can pretend that it is good for the economy, since it gives some income to the guy who repairs it. That guy will spend his money to buy food from a merchant who will spend his money to buy something else. The broken window has started a long chain of economic activities and spending. But that reasoning is obviously false, since the owner of the window would probably have spent his money on something else, if given the choice, maybe a book. And the librarian would have spent his money on something else etc. The chain of activities that starts with the broken window is obtained at the expenses of another chain. The only way to distinguish the two chains with any certainty is to look at their beginning. The broken window chain starts with a net loss. There is no way any convoluted reasoning can erase that fact. Bastia noticed that a lot of our economic reflections are expressed to present an indisputable waste as if it was "good for the economy". He gives many examples: buying artworks nobody cares about, building roads where nobody is traveling, posting soldiers in garrison just to support the local economy etc. All those things, artwork, roads, garrisons, should be considered for their own merits and not for hypothetical economic fallouts. Of course, it is even worse if you pay people for nothing. You lose the useful work that they would have done otherwise.

About Dubai, If they dig underground (at sea level ) to make water tunnel ( this tunnel should go through their land from one side of the ocean to another side of the ocean. They can not stop the water tunnel , it might flood. The area that they need to get water, they can do T intersection at water tunnel by using motor to pull up the water. Not sure if we have the technology that change salt water to regular water or not. If not, they can build two dam. One is connected directly to the sea water, another one will be located in the same area. The rain from the clouds that caused by evaporated sea water will be stored in the second dam. Possible or fiction? If Japan make sea level water tunnel from one side of the ocean go through the land to another side of the ocean, can this help when there is Tsunami? When the tide go up, the tunnel with some motor pulling the tide in and release it at the other side of the ocean. This should make the wave smaller?

Ah the Dubai islands. I remember when these were first announced, my friends and I could see the massive dredging ships out at sea when we went surfing. Those islands blocked most of the fetch and by the time I left there weren't any good beaches left in Dubai.

Construction of the Line might be possible, but it is a wildly impractical way to make a city. No alternative transport routes? And designed in a way that still necessitates travelling between suburbs? Yeah I'll pass
Alberto Hervello

What hasn't been explained in the video, is that the buildings that construct The Line are 500m high and both sides are glazed mirror facades. The problem is the scale, how to ventilate the interior of such a high rise, the effect in the sorroundings, plus the fact that people will be mostly confined in their habitat, etc.... I could also agree that a line is not the ideal configuration for a city, as same people have already commented.

I just read about the line yesterday, the price tag I seen was 1.2 trillion US-Dollars. It also doesn’t make any sense, a square would make more sense. Then they could use the shade for water supplies, irrigation, desalinization plants and farming. 60 km by 60 km, you could actually feed the population of 9 million intended to live there. The whole point is to be self sustaining. Instead of mirrors, the outer walls should be solar panels

The canal Istanbul project is not a perpetrator, it is necessary because the Bosphorus can no longer handle ship traffic and large ships are a danger to the Bosphorus. Also, with the Lausanne treaty disaster, the dominance of the straits was taken from the Turks, it is an extremely necessary project for an independent Turkey.

The Istanbul canal is feasible, but may takes years to complete. And then Turkey can force ships to pass through that canal by closing the existing Bosphorus one.
Soner Koca

They cannot close the Bosphorus to foreign ships due to a treaty signed in 1936. However, Canal Istanbul, if it's ever built, will be like a "Toll Road" for commercial ships. Instead of waiting to pass the Bosphorus, they will be able to pay 10s of thousands of dollars and pass through the Canal Istanbul to save time.
