Makes me think of the famous sci-fi novel series called RingWorld. A huge ring around the Sun or in one of it's orbits is created by humans and people travel from region to region around the ring but it is too big to really as easily the otherside or along the curvature like this CG model in the post. But the concept of a large orbiting living space the size of a city by sending out materials from earth and the moon to build it would make a similar geographical image.
