Eco-Trek 16: Russia's Way to a greener Future

The sixteenth edition of Eco-Trek - one of the first ever syndicated green online news magazines and presented by German actress Anita Anthonj is now available for download and re-publishing for websites, newspapers, and magazines.

Russia is by far the largest country in the world and is dealing with many environmental challenges. It is also home of some daring futuristic concepts that one day may become a reality. Eco-City 2020 is one such concept. Envision an underground city entirely powered by the sun for more than 100,000 people. The architectural studio AB Elis in Moscow has conceived this idea, to be built in the crater of a defunct diamond mine in Siberia. The new city is designed to be divided into 3 levels with a vertical farm, forests, residences, and recreational areas. Another such project is the The Ark hotel, designed by Remistudio in connection with the International Union of Architects' program, "Architecture for Disaster Relief." Russian architect, Alexander Remizov, is the mastermind behind the project and he believes that his floating "slinky," which can hold up to 10,000 people can be used for multiple purposes.
