It’s no secret that countries with extensive resources are focusing their efforts to minimize pollution on the planet. However, Dubai has decided to simply eliminate the problem altogether by creating the world’s first indoor city.

“Tourism is key driver of our economy and we aim to make the UAE [the United Arab Emirates] an attractive destination all year long,” said Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, in a statement. “This is why we will start working on providing pleasant temperature-controlled environments during the summer months.”

The 48 million square-foot enclosed city will be called The Mall of the World, it will be the first climate-controlled city-sized enclosure to allow residents to completely avoid outside conditions for weeks on end. The city will include:

An 8 million-square-foot shopping mall.
