If the world´s popuation was placed into one city….

If the world´s 6.9 billion people all lived in one city, how big would the city be, if it was as dense as Paris or Houston… or Kallio neighbourhood in Helsinki?


What would the world’s landscape look like if it were concentrated into one megalopolis?  This graphic analysis illustrates the amount of land required to accommodate all 6.9 billion people based on the densities of cities across the globe.  The differences illuminate the adverse affects of suburban sprawl.

Reminder: Megapolis at Vanha Ylioppilastalo in Helsinki 15.10.2011
