Pyramid as the main type of architectural structure

The pyramid has a lot of disadvantages, in comparison with other buildings: such a building requires more square, many rooms in the pyramid do not assume natural lighting because they do not have windows and these rooms will be more difficult to ventilate.

In a supposed pyramid city, people may need more time to move around. However, with a thoughtful design of the city, it will take less time to move, even in a city of pyramids.

However, for the construction of cities that are designed to stand and last for at least a thousand years, such a type of architectural structure as a pyramid is the best choice.

The pyramid is the most stable type of structure in terms of geometry. A skyscraper, on the contrary, is the most unstable type of structure from the point of view of geometry. Choosing the most sustainable type of structure is especially important for overcoming natural disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes.

The large area of the pyramid for a comfortable living of the population is an advantage, since the population density per unit area is less.

The pyramid also has some other important advantages.
Maintenance of such a building will be easier because there will be practically no snow or water accumulating on the sides of the pyramid. Snow and water will flow down on the edges tangentially.
The elevator in the pyramid, moving not strictly vertically, but tangentially parallel to the sides of the pyramid, will consume less electricity, saving which in conditions of energy shortage becomes very important.

The above-mentioned disadvantage of the pyramid in the absence of natural light can be solved by creating a system of mirrors inside the pyramid that will transmit light from outside to inside the building. That is, the pyramid can have a light conditioning system.

Several thousand years ago, famous structures were built: the pyramids in Egypt. These great structures have been standing for several thousand years. And they will be able to stand, perhaps, for tens of thousands of years.

Unfortunately, most of today's buildings around the world will not be able to stand even a small fraction of the time that the pyramids have already stood. There are buildings that fall even before the construction is completed.

Unlike modern buildings that have never been designed and built to last for centuries, the buildings of the future should be designed to last for millennia, withstanding earthquakes and other natural disasters.

The pyramid as the main type of architectural structure solves the problem of regular urban restructuring. Pyramids are an opportunity to give the future of humanity reliable and durable homes to live in.
