      @Moist Cena ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) the person hiring the architect is the one creating the jobs. The architect would not need engineers if there was no contract to make something. Plus... engineers practically always have a job, a few post modernist architects don't make a difference. Those not on the job are on another job.
      The only difference a post modernist architect makes is he somehow makes unsafe for work designs that the engineers have to now carefully create.

      @To Jog or Not to jog we most certainly have 2 completely different approaches to this subject. Sure they are part of the process. Someone would logically first hire an architect to design & conceive a design. After the design is done, checked over twice and approved - then you start hiring/contracting workers to actually realize & build said design. Without the architect the construction side workers would be "unemployed" for lack of a better word.

    You forgot to adjust for inflation for the estimated cost of the Australia canal. The price adjusted for inflation is about 400 billion and also the canal will have to go through places of very high elevation (300 meters above sea level at least) and the Panama Canal only goes up 26m. Also the Panama Canal uses a gate system meaning that is not just a free flowing canal. If you were to build the Australian Canal then you would either have to make it free flowing (extremely difficult considering the elevation of the areas it has to go through) or build a fuckton of gates. Basically the price would be in the trillions of usd at least.

    7:45 it would be a saline lake, so it wouldn't really make the bordering land super arable as plants don't usually do well with salt in the soil...
    It would start to evaporate and become more salty, but this would cause more rain to be created in the area (unsure whether it would fall there though) You do have an exit channel planned though which would allow salt to cycle out of the lake/sea...and this would be a massive shipping route as well, for both the centre of Australia and the coastal cities in the East.

      you'd have to create it at a high elevation so you could run rivers through both to expand the livable area it would create, and to ensure the water actually flows and isn't stagnant. You'd also have to transport all the water up there to begin with, and probably continue to do so until the evaporation cycle ensures it stays filled and flowing

      There's also the question as to whether or not the land in that area would even be able to be arable even IF there was more rain.
      Additionally, just because both ends would connect to the ocean, that doesn't mean that the water would flow in from one end and out the other. You'd have to figure out some way to keep the water flowing to cycle through. Otherwise what might happen is that both ends would have the ocean flowing in towards a larger central lake/inner sea where the water evaporates and causes the salt to build up. You might be able to fix that by some sort of system of pumps, but that wouldn't be sustainable at all.
      You'd also have to make sure the river was both wide enough to actually cause a noticeable change to the surrounding geography through evaporation, deep enough that the water wouldn't evaporate over the hundreds (or even thousands) of miles in distance that it would cover, and also that the sides of the artificial river were structurally reinforced so you didn't have to worry about erosion blocking off stuff.

Like finding entrance is a very important thing and architects like hadid doens't focus on that all they do is taking attention.

Mentioning all the little things that architects have to consider, even down to the frequency of lighting used in different areas, like "oh, you want people to congregate in the corners away from the flow of traffic, so they have warm lighting to make them relaxed" and other such considerations. And with layout I guess you've got to be always asking "will this confuse dumb people?"

      The only issue is that the Panama Canal was build between 1881 and 1914. If you adjust for inflation the price goes up by something like 3000%, or like 400 Billion USD. Considering the Australian GDP is about 1.3 Billion USD that seems like a tall order.
      Edit: I was off by 4 orders of magnitude because of long/short scale conversion, woops. Anyways I think the point still stands since this would be an absolutely massive undertaking, but yeah, the numbers are wrong.

    in the middle of the night we got woken up by weird sounds and lights and it turns out one of the neighbours houses with also the same traditional roofing caught on fire. actually it's quite dangerous since most houses in that area had this specific roofing and the cinder coming off of one house could light the others on fire as well. well anyways. firefighters showed up. things were taken care off.
    next day news came in. nobody was hurt. family owning the house was on vacation. electrical fire :^)

      Yes but the question isn't would it cost so much, it's would it make the cost back and more. For example, the Panama Canal was deemed worth it because it made such a useful route between the Atlantic and Pacific that people had no issue paying the tolls, and the tolls have generated billions.
      So the question is: could they come up with some way to make this generate money? And if (and I'm aware this is an if, I haven't looked into it) it turned a lot of uninhabitable land habitable, stuff like property taxes would do that for them.

    To the salt water argument - you can add structures that let the water vaporise and catch up the salt free steam or sth like this.
    Also planting trees and building houses would reduce the local temperatures.
    And the money for the canal could be brought back by selling land around the canal. Just think of exclusive areas right at the new and famous canal.
    And if it works out you can copy paste the project to north Africa
