Siapa yang tidak kenal Dubai.
Boleh dianggap antara tempat yang tercantik dan termaju di dunia dari segi binaannya.
Pelbagai binaan yang boleh dikatakan seperti tidak masuk akal telah dibina atau sedang dalam perancangan.
Kali ini, satu lagi perancangan baru yang telah diutarakan adalah Dubai Lilypad Floating City.
Hendak tahu lebih lanjut, baca seterusnya.
Architectural Concept: Lilypad Floating City
CityBy now, most of us have heard about the Island Cities being built
in Dubai , but Inhabitat has just done a feature on a new concept by
artist Vincent Callebaut for a self-sufficient floating city that will
never have to face a problem about finding land to build on. The
"Lilypad" would take advantage of all of today's green technologies,
including generating power from the sun, wind and water, and would
produce zero emissions from its residents. Don't expect to see
construction on one of these anytime soon, but don't be surprised if,
like the Island Cities in Dubai , real estate starts branching out into
the oceans in the next decade.
of these floating cities are designed to hold approximately around
50,000 people. A mixed terrain man-made landscape, provided by an
artificial lagoon and three ridges, create a diverse environment for
the inhabitants. Each Lilypad is intended to be either near a coast, or
floating around in the ocean, traveling from the equator to the
northern seas, according to where the gulf stream takes it.
project isn’t even close to happening anytime soon, but there is value
in future forward designs like the Lilypad. They inspire creative
solutions, which at some point, may actually provide a real solution to
the climate change problem.
