EEA in Russia

It seems somewhat fitting to continue the theme of ludicrous mega-urban developments in countries with near-dictatorial political regimes, by sending along news of Erick van Egeraat’s design for a chain of artificial islands in the shape of Russia. Enough already.

I haven’t seen the book yet, but apparently Mike Davis is taking a critical look at these urban fantasies in his next, titled Evil Paradises: Dreamworlds of NeoLiberalism.

    what the hell is the obsession with building artificial land?? the land we already have is in trouble as it is, why build something that may well be inundated in the not too distant future? and why do they always make them look like somewhere else that already exists?

    hmm, mikes davis… have never quite had the energy to read his work.

  2. i would like to know that what are the main featutres of these artificial islands?
