City Kit

City Kit is a self-building infrastructure solution that uses biotechnology and robotics to grow new buildings. The City Kit provides material to grow 100% self-sufficient cities in a matter of weeks.

Sea level rises will displace more than 375 million people if global temperatures rise by an average of 2 degrees Centigrade. Melting polar ice, desertification and more extreme climate events will put our cities and homes at risk, forcing us to find new ways of living. The third section of the exhibition imagines a future where the UAE has developed new solutions to providing urban structures quickly.

City Kit Sales Center

At the Sales Centre, visitors can find out everything they need to know about the City Kit. They can even test out the Kit and see it in action using an interactive demo.

City Kit Deployment

A single unit is launched from the sky. Within seconds, it unfolds itself into the skeleton of a house. After evaluating its surroundings, it transforms local resources into building materials. A home is planted. When more kits are dropped nearby, they connect together to develop a fluid urban network that grows organically.

Nature is smart. City Kit works with Nature, rather than against it drawing from its surroundings to produce its own building materials. It mixes sand and bacteria to create new roads, buildings, and infrastructure. But that’s not all: it also plants trees and rebuilds existing infrastructure to create beautiful, thriving ecosystems wherever it goes.

City Kit can also upgrade and enhance existing urban environments. Use City Kit in an existing neighbourhood and it will drain flooded streets, repair crumbling buildings, and grow sustainable infrastructure around it.
