Syd Mead dreams the future of Doha, Qatar


BBG's patron saint of design, Syd Mead, has released his latest vision of a future city: Doha, Qatar. Limpet dirigibles whale through the sky while oil barons cavort in martini glass sky parks.

As I am the luckiest person in the world — and beneficiary of the machinations of one Ms. Xeni Jardin — I will be sitting down with Mr. Mead tomorrow in his home to shoot an interview for Boing Boing TV. After I get done gushingly asking him to draw the future on my pot belly with a Sharpie, what would you like for me to ask him about?
