on i09, Vincze Miklos rounds up a number of proposals for ultra-high density cities built into single buildings, starting with one I had never seen, a drawing by digital artist Jake Murray. IO9 adds some hilarious annotations (including wonderment at why we still have Walmart delivering in 18 wheelers).

In fact, architects have been looking at these concepts for over a hundred years; Miclos shows some we have seen on TreeHugger before and others that are new to me. We pick up on the theme.
