    NEOM, the highly anticipated futuristic region in northwest Saudi Arabia by the Red Sea that is currently being developed, has announced the opening of NEOM Media Village and Bajdah Desert Studios. Together the structures will be the Kingdom’s largest sound stages with extensive production facilities.
    NEOM Media Village houses a sound stage at 2,400 sq m and has three more stages under construction. Bajdah Desert Studios has the largest stages with two at 3,000 sq m each with four becoming active at the end of 2022. One of the stages will be a highly developed volumetric production stage.

    Really interesting interview with Tarek Qaddumi, NEOM's Urban Planning Director.

    The project is reinventing urbanism, seeking to remove the pollution, noise, and sprawl of city living in favor of an ultra-efficient utopia. In an exclusive interview with NEOM’s director of urban planning Tarek Qaddumi, designboom explores how the megacity will operate, and what life inside THE LINE will look like.








    DB: And THE LINE will complete in eight years — by 2030?

    TQ: We are looking at an aggressive schedule, and the first modules will be completed before that. However, the first substantial population living on the LINE will be in 2030.

    DB: So the project will be able to grow over time.

    TQ: Absolutely. The first substantial population we are looking at is about a million plus. But then the capacity of the LINE is nine million people. So, you can imagine it’s a city that’s going to grow organically. Nine million people is Greater London or New York City with its five boroughs. So, this is going to be an organic process that will take years.
    This new approach reduces THE LINE’s physical footprint to 2 percent of that of a conventional city of a similar population. London currently sits at about 1600 km2 compared to 34 km2 of THE LINE for the same population of approximately 9 million. As the world’s population grows and as urban migration continues, we see THE LINE, radical as it may be, as a viable alternative to the gradual and systematic takeover of natural ecologies and landscapes.

    Urban life within THE LINE is another driver for THE LINE’s 3-dimensional organization. Two direct derivatives of Zero Gravity Urbanism are Hyper-Proximity and Hyper-Mixed-use. Hyper Proximity is the phenomenon by which more people come closer together than ever before imaginable, promoting exceptional social interaction and cultural exchange. Manhattan, an example of a high-density vibrant city, achieves 25,000 people within a 5-minute walk. THE LINE reaches 80,000 population catchments while maintaining the same comfort and density.
