Russian architectural firm Ab Elise has designed a proposed city to be constructed 550-meters deep in an abandoned Siberian mine. The ‘Eco-city 2020’ would be built inside the Mir diamond mine that measures over one kilometer in diameter and would be able to house 100,000 people. The city will be covered with a protective glass dome to guard its residents from Siberia’s inclement weather, while the solar cells on its walls will harvest the sun’s energy to provide power for the whole city.
