Future Earth (2014) Hosted by Thomas Goetz (executive editor, Wired) [Documentary]:
I watched this video for some design inspiration and for considering what might be important in building a contained city.
- Masdar City is an arcology project in Abu Dhabi. It’s designed with energy efficiency in mind e.g. buildings are built close together resulting in little reflected light and therefore less need for air conditioning, transportation is entirely underground to accommodate this. It’s largely solar powered.
- Autonomic vehicles increase fuel efficiency. Platooning decreases energy use by 10%.
