“The Ark”, from #Russian architectural firm Remistudio, is designed as a bioclimatic building with independent life-support systems that can be built on land or sea. Architect Alexander Remizov envisioned this project as the house for the future which can be constructed quickly and withstand environmental disasters through its structural integrity. #Sustainability
As sea levels rise and coastal cities try to figure out how to deal with the threat of flooding, some cities are starting to consider building farther from the water’s edge. This design concept, the Ark Hotel from Russian architecture firm Remistudio, is entirely waterproof, so if water levels rise too much, it can actually float in the ocean.
Russian architectural firm Remistudio has taken the concept of a man-made biosphere and gone to sea with its vision for the floating "Ark Hotel." Designed to withstand floods, tidal waves and rising ocean levels as well as earthquakes and other natural disasters, the hotel concept would float and function independently on the surface of a body of water, providing a green, self-sustaining environment for guests who presumably, would never have to leave.
