Saudi Arabia Rainforest Project

Phil Pauley has been travelling to Saudi Arabia for the past few years inline with its growing interest in renewable energy investment and an increase in Cultural Tourism and Education within The Kingdom.

Forget stereotype ideologies, Saudi Arabia is driving the region with a huge increase in inward investment towards sustainable infrastructure and is striving to increase their "green profile" globally.

The Saudi Biome project embraces all of the above, sustainable energy, cultural tourism and educational opportunities for the entire region. This will be a real rainforest environment in the desert!

If the plans are approved within the coming months partners will be selected to build the worlds largest undercover Biosphere created within one of the hottest and hostile environments in the world.

Phil's outline concept design incorporates a waterfall, aquarium, eating areas, a hotel, commercial and residential units, a shopping centre and a central viewing area and restaurant at the very top.


Sub Biosphere 2

The Sub Biosphere 2 has been featured on CNN, click here to see it.
From an early age Phil Pauley has been visualising marine habitat concepts. In 1997 his dissertation "Water, water everywhere" centered around a design for a self-sufficient marine habitat entitled Sub-Biosphere 2 inspired by the trails of the Biosphere 2 Project in the USA.

He has had letters of support from a wide range of governmental departments including the Prime Ministers Office, Global Corporations such as Virgin Management and international celebrities such as Sir David Attenborough.

His research into establishing a Global Marine Research Program through the implementation of a self-sustainable underwater habitat remains his passion and his ultimate life experience goal. His commitment to preserving life, sustainable design and environmental awareness is at the forefront of all his work.

"Each of the two screens can, incidentally, be used to run from a separate source, which could mean the end of playing games versus watching TV fights in many a household up and down the land." (Times Online)

The Urban Tree Planter provides a solution to the modern urban environment, where space is restricted, planning permission is complex and hard to achieve, and greenery is becoming ever more important.

It is the first attempt at Standardising urban Tree installation and management where natural tree growth will be restricted due to underground services. For further information please contact

"A modular planting system that allows trees to be planted in difficult urban situations was launched at Ecobuild." (Horticulture Week)

Hydrostatic Turbines™

Hydrostatic Turbines™ are self sustainable electric power plants designed to operate underwater at depth.

The Turbines are situated in groups of "cells" and consist of the "Body" and the "Cap" which acts like a pump.

Electricity can be used on land through a connecting electrical umbilical cord or through retrieving the "Storage" cells.

Each unit acts like an electricity generating "spinning top", sustained by the continuous pumping action of the (handle) Cap.

Electricity is generated by the external atmospheric pressure on the Cap interacting with a system of magnets that turn a turbine repetitively.

Designed by Phil Pauley and visualised by Pauley Interactive, Hydrostatic Turbines will revolutionise the way the World produces sustainable electricity.

This is the first time a Conceptual Designer has been involved in designing a building before an Architectural Practice has been selected, and marks a new era in open source architectural design.

The project that promotes “bringing the rainforest to the desert” has been ear marked for a central location in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia and will encompass a hotel, residential units and retails space within a rainforest environment and a 200ft waterfall.

The design has posed a number of challenges including water management and heat regulation within a building 3 x larger than that of the Eden Project, Cornwall.
