The OMA scheme organizes the island into three rings. At its heart, a ?Living Lab? will offer visitors the opportunity to observe the New Economy in action, while also functioning as an ?Innovation Engine? for resident companies. The ?Weave Zone? village development branches out from this core, offering a mixed-use program of housing, offices, and amenities. The island?s perimeter hosts the headquarters of Unicorn companies, intended to ?blossom at the outer circle of the weave along the waterfront.?
