Anybody remember this? Well now you do...

Hey, Ryer here with another project, a revival if you will of an old project, passed from Marclarrel (I think thats right) to Team Subspace to me. Team subspace is now doing his own revival, similar to how I did mine, and hopefully he will have that posted in to coming times. The original had 9 layers, and was a massive project. I scaled that down to 4 layers, so I could add more detail to each, such as a base, hanging skyscrapers, and detailed bridges.

Believe it or not, this was the project that actually intorduced me to minecraft. About 3 years ago I saw marclarrel's video on the alpha version of this project, and after watching an episode of Extreme Engineering (Now Build it Bigger) on discovery, I was impressed on the games capabilities. And for my entire noob time in the game, I was playing a free version online. Eventually I bought the real version and found I liked to build. That just escalated to where I am now. Here on PMC with a moderately successful account.

So history aside, if you are even reading all of this, you may want to know about the actuall proposal. The Shimizu Megacity Pyramid, or TRY 2004 structure was proposed as one of Shimizu Corperation's dreams, along with a space hotel and lunar bases and floating cities. The structure was supposed to solve some of the needs of Tokyo's growing population and lack of space. The structure was to hold 750,000 to 1,000,000 people in hanging skyscrapers, each up to 100 stories tall. They would move around the structure using various modes of transportation, like personal pods, accelerated walkways, "future busses" (pods for many people) and elevators. The spheres, or nodes, are 50 meters in diameter, and are the hubs of the transportation system, and would contain shops as well as other anemities. The full structure would contain 8 layers, each 250 meters tall, consisting of pyramids, with a base of 350 meters. The horizontal shafts, each measuring 10 meters in diameter will contain transportation, as well as electrical and communication services. The diagonal shafts, each 16 meters in diameter will contain Elevators, Plumbing, and electrical services. Light will be moved around the city via fiber optics collected in the outer layers of the node, made of crystalized glass. The Pyramid would be contructed using robots putting peices together. The peices made out of lightweight and durable materials, like carbon nanotubes. All in all, this is one huge project that only Japan could come up with...

Anyway I hope you like my interpretation, and that you Diamond, Favorite, and Subscibe!
