SimCity 2000’s Plymouth Arcology

de Young Tower

The de Young Museum’s observation tower.

The analogy struck me when I saw the de Young Tower from the aptly-named Grand View Park. Maybe the resemblance isn’t quite so clear as it was in my mind.

Also, arcologies? Anyone want to hazard a guess what fraction of people familiar with the term learned about it from SimCity 2000? I’m going to say 99.
