Dubai is definitely not known for doing things by half, from the world's tallest building to the world's largest mall, this is a town that likes thing BIG! Now the UAE government has announced it is building the world's largest space simulation city, and to top it off it will be designed by one of the world's flashiest architects, Bjarke Ingels, whose company is literally called BIG.

The project is called the 'Mars Science City' and will cover 1.9 million sq ft (176,516 sqm) at a cost of nearly US$140 million dollars. The city will span several domes, including space for a team to live for up to a year as part of a Mars simulation.  There will be several laboratories included in the simulation city, a museum exhibiting great space achievements will also be incorporated into the city with the walls of the museum being 3D  printed, using sand from nearby Emirati desert. 

"The new project is another step in the UAE's leading contributions to the global science movement; we seek to set an example and motivation for others to participate, and contribute, to humanity's march into space. The Mars 2117 Project is a long-term project, where our first objective is to develop our educational system so our sons will be able to lead scientific research across the various sectors," Sheikh Mohammed said when announcing the Mars mission in February this year. 

Dubai is increasingly looking like a town straight out of a sci-fi movie with robotic police and autonomous taxi drones already being rolled out, so why not add a futuristic Mars city simulation to the mix.
