An entire city inside one giant building. Similar to the West Edmonton Mall, but with more housing space, and more optimally designed for living in.
-Saves space by taking full advantage of 3rd dimension and packing things closer together
-Never have to worry about lousy weather,
bugs, lawn mowing, snow shovelling, etc
-No rising fuel costs, car accidents, or car insurance
Come on, go for original next time.
Or do a quick search. [zeno, Sep 18 2008]

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||You can imagine the probelm in construction is getting the money to build something so big at once. Unless, we can get everybody in one city to move at once.
||Cities grow bit by bit, usually the bits are defined by what the market can afford and demands at that point meaning there are scale limitations imposed.
||There are other interesting comments and links on this under 'vertical cities'.
||Already described in a number of Asimov stories, notably "The Caves Of Steel".
||Yes, baked in real life, heavily in fiction and covered completely in other posts. (-)
