Timelinks to offer Zigguarat - a unique pyramid shaped self sustained community

Ziggurat - environment friendly city from Timelinks
The Dubai-based property developer Timelinks, also a pioneering environmental design company, is all set to tackle issues such as population growth in Gulf Cities, and issues such as infrastructure pressure and environment carbon neutral solutions, through its proposed eco-city, the Zigguarat project, hoped to cater to a population of one million by harnessing power of nature.

The unique pyramid-shaped city could support an entire community by employing a car-less environment with a transport system powered by solar energy, wind and steam. The carbon emissions within the city is hoped to be reduced by 90 percent.

Timelinks will employ natural renewable energy resources of solar, wind and steam making it completely self-sustainable. The building will have water channels, parks and lakes with climate zones that make it cooler at higher elevations.

The project unveils a whole load of benefits. The whole cities in the project can be accommodated in complexes which would occupy only less than 10 percent of original land surface. The private and public landscaping will be utilized for leisure pursuits or as agricultural land for irrigation.
The concept also promises better quality of life for its inhabitants. Biometrics would provide security with facial recognition technology.

Zigguarat will take a new path towards harmonizing architecture and technology without affecting the environment, while also catering to needs of every individual.

The Zigguarat project will be unveiled during the forthcoming Cityscape Dubai 2008 due to be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Center between the 6th and 9th October 2008.

Timelinks has already patented the technology and design incorporated in the project, and has sought for granting of technical projects from the European Union. Several eminent professors from Europe will explain the technicalities of how the Zigguarat project works and how these communities could be integrated in master projects.
