If you’ve ever wondered how Dubliners could be living in the future than this video might give you some idea.
Blackrock firm Bright Design Architects have come up with a radical plan to expand the capital ‘upwards’ rather than ‘outwards’. The company has released a design for a 112-storey co-located living and working space which would include elevated schools, parks and shopping areas.
The project known as ‘Habistrata’ would see Dubliners residing in high-density vertical villages with a city link to Dollymount strand and a light rail service to Dublin Airport.
The initial design also includes a hospital, a swimming pool, a nursing home as well as a ‘Museum Of Dublin’ and observation deck at the very top.
It certainly looks a far cry from the cramped accommodation some of us call home in 2018. Have a look at the video above and let us know what you think of the proposed move in the comments.
