Near future, near space. Stream City is a temporal metaphor. It surrounds the Earth like a ring, remains in place, stationary, rotates with the Earth on her Axis. The city lies at an altitude of about 100 km and runs at a speed of just over 1700 km / h above the equator. Thus, Stream City, the rotation of the earth is compensated. The day side are placed energy systems, solar panels and greenhouses that supply the city. The night side provide space for laboratories, high-tech industries and the creative campus.

The city is a universal means of transport. With the help of elevators and shuttles from the surface of the Earth can be up and reach the city to stay the desired time, by selecting the time frame in which you want to spend some time.
