Malé, the capital of the Maldives is heavily urbanized, with the city taking up the entire island (land area 1.7 km2 / 0.65 sq mile). Almost one third of the nation’s population lives in Malé. Everyone Maldivian who does not live in Male wants to move there. This island city is overcrowded; there is not any empty land left. Just higher buildings can provide a space for the constantly growing population. Skyscrapers standing in the middle of the ocean? This vision sounds a little bit unreal. I wonder how would this town look like in 20 or 30 year from now.
