Amazing Desings

Floating City Designs

Vincent Callebaut has designed some very cool floating cities. Could these designs be the answer to the threat of rising sea levels offering a safe haven for people who have lost their homes to flooding?

Rather than building up our city's defences with dams, Vincent Callebaut has put forward an alternative future for the victims of rising water if current climate change predictions take affect.

The floating ecopolis, inspired by Amazonian lilypads, are designed to be completely self-sufficient in both power and water, through solar power, wind turbines and rainfall collection.

Here are some other cool floating city designs from various architects and designers that are worth showing.
