Architect Alexander Krasinski offers an amazing idea for an artificial island in the Persian Gulf, UAE, aimed with an aim to create a new state with its own government and economic policy. Designed keeping in mind the rising sea levels, architect Alexander Krasinski has envisaged this breathtaking creation as an answer to globalization and human impact on environment.

The artificial island is envisioned as a giant building. Set in the scales of the ocean floor, it will inhabit 52,096 people. The island will be equipped with ocean-going vessels dock, an airport, a garden at 100 meters above sea level, office spaces, administrative, governmental and academic centres, luxury residential apartments, recreational pavilions, sports facilities and terraces with Water Park. 1000 metres in diameter and equally tall, the island is expected to be an architectural marvel, much like its counterparts around the world.
