City in water

Posted in Uncategorized by Mick on August 4, 2008


This is nice, a whole city on the water shaped like lilypads, the future of architecture if you ask me. Let the sea level rise, we are prepared!

The similarity between the round water-city-blocks designed by BIG and Vincent Callebaut is promising. A couple more of such proposals and we can be almost sure it’s going to be realized! Speaking with Winy Maas, here the invention is also followed by another invention. Whereas the city block (actually a dolfinarium) by BIG doesn’t float and lies still in the water, Vincent Callebaut proposes a configuration where some of his city blocks move around the globe on the current of the sea.
