Architect Alexander Krasinski shared with us his idea for an artificial island in the Persian Gulf, United Arab Emirates. More images and architect’s description after the break.

Design intentions Ideas concept is to create artificial land and adequate infrastructure with a view to a large agglomeration of human existence. The concept of architecture is the answer in the light of the problems closely related to globalization and the human impact on the environment, as well as continuity in the perdition of human rights in connection with the growing process to create a global bank and corporate influence on the shaping of international law. In a nutshell: the rise of sea water and high taxes. The island can create a new state with its own government and economic policy.
