Will Turkey Build Up An Island For 300,000 People? (+VIDEO)




Turkey is planning to dig a new canal that would connect the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara by 2023. The project presupposes moving a billion cubic meters of dirt from one place to another, thus building up a sustainable island that would provide living space for 300,000 people. HavvAda Island would be built around six hills with a gigantic kilometer-wide amphitheater in the middle. Each hill is a geodesic dome, with a “mesh” stretched over it to support soil, plants and residences with nice views; the interior of the domes are hollow and each is dedicated to a different focus, including creativity, logic, family, health, business etc, while the amphitheater in the middle is meant for trade. HavvAda Island is self-sustaining and can produce more energy than it consumes: seawater would be pumped through a chilled water ring to deliver coolness all across the island instead of using air conditioners. Waste would be sucked away through a network of pneumatic tubes for recycling, while the energy to power everything would come from an offshore wind farm along with solar panels on the slopes of the island itself. Sounds realistic, though very expensive!
