Several futuristic projects to shape our world.  These are all fairly awesome, and can be broken down into three main categories:

1. Luna Ring to generate Solar Electricity – useful.

2. Assorted self-sustaining habitats – cool.

3. Space Hotel – about f-ing time, science!

It’s fun to think that these, or similar projects, might happen eventually even if I am not around to see them.  Until then, it’s back to the sci-fi books I guess.

And at the other end of the building spectrum:

I am particuarly intrigued by the Walled City of Kowloon.  Very inspiring for writers!
