Studio Ideas and Inspiration

Lilypad

Posted in interesting projects, studio 2a_2009 by Sarah Gelbard on 5 October 2009

This so-called Lilypad Project has the idea to create a series of floating self-sufficient ocean-going eco-city islands. Each one would be able to house 50,000 residents and would support a great deal of biodiversity. Collecting pools located in their centers would gather and filter water for use on board. These would be places for adventurers and refugees alike as water levels rise around the world and threaten many, particularly island, habitats.

Personally, I think these kind of architecture is the way to the future as environmental issues are getting more serious. People need to find ways to design architecture that not only does not damage the nature, but also protect or even help to create nature. A project like this creates a whole ecosystem within itself would be really ideal.
