Futuristic Walking Metropolis Could Roam Around the World Planting Forests in its Wake
The 560-meter-long structure rests on giant caterpillar tracks which enable it to move from one location to another. A total of 36 crawlers propelled by engines similar to those used in large sea vessels enable it to move. Three levels would house an array of functions necessary for the city to function and accommodate a large nomadic population. The lowest floor would be used as a warehouse and construction area, the middle part would be designated for waste disposal and air conditioning, while the top floor would be used as a living deck.
Despite its size, the city would strive to reduce its impact on its surroundings – the area left behind by the city would be reforested. Dominguez claims that the structure could actually be built – he based it on mechanisms and existing technology from the mining, transportation and robotics industries as well as plans from contemporary eco villages.
