The Heart of Europe will be a collection of six islands, each with their own micro-climate boasting snow, rain and ice. Dubai has made it its mission to defy all expectations. Now, the emirate is planning for its very own snow resort, The Heart of Europe. A series of six islands, each will have their own micro-climate boasting snow, rain and ice, Huffington Post reported.
How? Using a fantastically complex network of pipes, huge snow cannons and rain dispensers the island can be covered in snow, rain and drizzle while cooling pipes will lower the surface temperature allowing the snow to settle.The system is recyclable as well thanks to a network of drains that'll collect the water and snow and then reintegrate it back into the process, creating a micro climate.
German property developer Kleindienst Group is behind the bold vision and says that it has already carried out successful trials of the technology which will form the foundation of the complex when construction begins in 2016.
The company also hopes to share its technology with the rest of Dubai allowing it to snow in the city centre during Christmas or to create small weather fronts within the city's enormous Mall of the World.
