The Golden Key to the Inspiration for the Universal City Project

Universal City Model - [Click for Close-up - 26k]

The urban-ecological grid of Universal City is the shape of a galaxy with five spiraling galactic arms.  It provides for five large, unspoiled, natural, green areas to reach into the center of the city.  Altitude: 15,000 ft.

Downtown Dome Megastructure - [Click for Close-up - 25k] Universal City's domed downtown mega structure is the three-dimensional heart of the city.  The mile diameter retractable dome provides a climate controlled garden core area:  the integration of  space-age technologies.  Altitude: 3,000 ft.  [Link to History of the U.C.

Our first stop is Borealis, population: 50,000,  the circular shaped cluster community in a spiral galactic arm.  Borealis  starts in the year 2025 as a World Celebration to the New Millennium, and the founding village of Universal City.  Altitude: 3,000 ft.

Cluster Communities - [Click for Close-up - 41k]

Energy Self-sufficient, Cluster Communities with the Architectural Themes of all Cultures of the Earth are visible as we approach Borealis.    We no longer think in terms of square blocks and straight lines.  Urban density increases towards the center of the city.  Altitude: 1,500 ft.

Borealis Village -  Stage I - Experimental Urban Module [University Research Centre]: population 5,000 people.  Area: 40 acres.  Built almost entirely of recycled materials from Old Age Cities we set the Template for Future Growth.  The curved lines are continuous pedestrian malls.  Altitude: 800 ft.

Prefabricated Living Modules - [Click for Close-up - 33k]

Prefabricated Living Modules manufactured mostly of recycled plastics and foamed ceramic concrete.  Robots will do most of the construction work.   Using solar energy architecture, all residential units will enjoy south-facing balconies.  

Monorail Personal Rapid Transit - [Click for Close-up - 17k]

The City will have one transportation system: Elevated Personal Rapid Transit (PRT).   The ground will be exclusively devoted to people, the air will contain the PRT: 1 to 6 passenger accident-free monorail vehicles that silently whisk at speeds of up to 80 mph over electromagnetic force fields.

The City as an Urban Ecology - [Click for Close-up - 48k]

The City as an Urban Ecology will not force the natural biodiversity beyond its ability to absorb new development.  Our watershed will not become polluted.  Our air will remain pure.  Everything will remain in a Total Recycling System.
