People have been designing arcologies for decades. They can make good science fiction, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle’s Oath of Fealty is well worth reading, but no one has ever managed to build one. The latest proposal is for New Orleans. The NOAH project would house 40,000 people in one giant building providing schools, commercial areas, hospitals and even casino.

I’ll believe it when I see it.
