Danish architect to design a utopian city in the American desert

Something with Lore
Currently, the project organizers are looking for a suitably deserted and affordable plot (60,000 acres) where potential sites are being explored in arid areas of Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona and Texas.

It is estimated that the project will cost somewhere around 2.5 trillion kroner, and the plan is to obtain funding from private investors, philanthropists and government grants.

The initial phase of the project is expected to be completed in 2030 and offer housing for 50,000 people who will be self-sufficient in green energy and recyclable water. Pedestrians and cyclists will be given priority.

In addition, the city must be designed in a way that gives citizens access to work, school and other facilities within 15 minutes of their home.

“We’re going to be the most open, fair and inclusive city in the world,” Lore said in a promotional video (see below).
