Building an entirely carbon-neutral, self-powered, zero-energy island resort, unfortunately, costs a lot of energy

people’s opinions on the ZIRA ISLAND project has been mixed.

some say it’s an amazing architectural feat designing an entire island with green architecture, some say it is an energy eater in disguise as an eco-friendly island.
