    London. October, 1992. A Japanese man entered a government building near Chancery Lane, and made his way up to an office on the first floor - this was the London branch of the UK’s Patent Office.
    You see this man was there on behalf of Japan’s renowned Shimizu Corporation - a leading architectural and engineering firm that was and is among the top in the world; and he was there to apply for a patent. (Note, to secure their ideas globally it was necessary to apply not just in Japan). Now this particular patent, was for no ordinary idea; it was for something grand - something spectacular; the idea was to build giant pyramids in the middle of some of the largest and busiest urban centers in the world; starting with Tokyo. These infrastructures would be so large, they could house entire cities.
    But why? What was this for?
    And who exactly is the Shimizu Corporation?
    To understand this, we need to go back in time, back over 200 years ago to the company’s inception.
    This video covers:
    - Shimizu Megacity Pyramid TRY-2004
    - Megastructures
    - Pyramidal structures
    - Japanese architectural & engineering companies
    - Kisuke Shimizu
    - Edo period
    - Japan's population decline
    - Tokyo's overpopulation & overcrowding
    - Large scale construction projects
    - Floating cities, underwater cities, space hotels
    - Blade Runner (Tyrell Corporation headquarters pyramid)
    - Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza
    - Burj Khalifa & Jeddah Tower
    - 2 kilometer high building
    - Tokyo Bay
    - Megatrusses & suspended skyscrapers
    - Renewable energy of solar, wind, algae & waves
    - Japanese earthquakes & tsunamis
    - Pacific Ring of Fire
    - X-Seed 4000 (Taisei Corporation)
    - Mega-City Pyramids in Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Delhi & Dhaka
    - Largest man-made structure in history
    - Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City

    Been a while, but I'm alive! Hope you like the video.
    Edit: The English pronunciation of the word 'patent' outside of North America tends to be 'pay-tent', and within North America 'pat-tent'. Neither are wrong. (There may be a few regions that don't follow this rule exactly, but in general it tends to be the case).
    Correction: Before 1868 the capital was Kyoto, not Edo. Also forgot to include that a major reason the Giza pyramid is mentioned in the video is because the Shimizu pyramid is meant to have the exact same (relative) dimensional proportions.

      I'm 60 years old, and until 2018, had NEVER HEARD ANYONE pronounce 'patent' as 'pay-tent', either in the U.S. OR in England (South Britain)...so not really sure what '20-something' came up with this idea...but it is NOT historical, by any means...

    And what do you do when the pyramid reaches the end of its economic or physical life span as all buildings do? Demolishing the pyramid would be a gong show of mega proportions.

    this pyramid would be an amazing location for a Blader Runner type film, imagine the lower levels being dirty, grimy and dangerous and the upper levels being wealthier and more futuristic. It could be the type of film where they take down an evil company or like a Blade Runner film and be about a detective trying to solve a murder, along the way finding out about these hidden secrets of the pyramid. Or another one (I am getting carried away here) where they are taught the outside world is dangerous and they have to stay inside all the time.
    Wow, what was going through my head! Anyway, great video!

    One of my favorite concept architecture designs was for the X-Seed 4000, essentially a pyramid that was supposed to house 1,000,000 residents. I believe the location was placed in Japan as well, but as far as I've read it was only a contest entry of sorts.
    (Then you show it in the video, haha)
    It would be an interesting concept, but do you have even half the resources to spare for such a structure? That is always a question I think of when it comes to looking at the drawings.

    if Japan continues to lose population, and Tokyo's population gain is due to people relocating from other parts of the country, then won't Japan's falling population eventually be reflected by Tokyo, meaning the problem would solve itself?

    One worry about this pyramid is that it will also be safe against terrorism because since 9/11 we saw what people were capable off to destroy each other and how much chaos was made by making a few buildings collapse

    The engineering is one thing, but what you say at 10:49 is near utopian.

    There is absolutely no reason to believe that the residents of this gigantic pyramid would either:

    -be well governed,
    -be "forward thinking," (which I hope isn't supposed to mean they some how shed their human nature),
    -be more efficient because of diversity,
    -or feel community.

    At least, not inherently.

    By the time this becomes technologically feasible overpopulation won't be a concern any more. Human growth rates are slowing down worldwide, declining even in many countries. The real problem will be under-population where our world's economy cannot sustain so many old people.

    BLUE MARAUDER 12 days ago +1

    problem, overpopulation in THE CITIES. solution leave the cities the world is massive and has space enough to house a population so diverse and spread out in the 10's of billions comfortably. we all choose to flock to the same areas and then live there and then complain about it. someone in new york right now is complaining about it but then if they took a fucking moment to travel and say they drive outwest and discover as there driving miles and miles of land just open and vast, would they learn the necessary skills and do what they can to live there? do your research people cause once you start digging the you'll find the real obstacle. how we defeat that is up to you.
