Vertical city inside a dead volcano

This is a plan of a vertical city in the middle of the ocean. Due to scarcity of dry land, the city is built vertically to optimize the use of available space. The city is built inside a crater of a dead volcano. People from the lower class live in the bottom of the crater. They enjoy less sunlight, no ocean view and no flat land, unlike the rich who live on top of the crater. Jesse van Dijk, a concept artist from Amsterdam, sees this as an optimal city design in the world where there is little dry land available.

I'd say that people from the lower class also enjoy quite a lot of carbon dioxide.

That would be cool in a movie or videogame, but in real life it would be Hell on Earth. Also bear in mind that the deadest of dead volcanoes still has a chance to re-awaken one day.
