Neom, the mega-development by Saudi Arabia, continues to expand and take shape, promising ten entirely new regions to be transformed with futuristic architecture.
The latest of these is called Epicon, a jagged, geometric set of towers and buildings that rise from the Gulf of Aqaba like a mirage. The extreme shapes are a huge contrast from the soft dunes and shorelines of the Gulf of Aqaba.
In addition to the sci-fi towers, Epicon includes a number of homes built into the dunes, which feel like they fit the landscape better.
What do you think about these ultra-modern/sci-fi designs?
It will comprise two jagged towers, one measuring 225 and the other 275 metres, which will contain 41 hotel and luxury residences.
The steel-clad skyscrapers are visualised as being interconnected by horizontal levels that hold an outdoor pool, among other spaces.”
