Futuristic Floating City ‘Aequorea’: 3D Printed and Made of Garbage

2585

Future is unknown and attracts the imagination of architects and designers who create most unpredictable and bizarre concepts of futuristic cities.

This time Nexter.org will tell you more about Aequorea.

3D printed floating city

Aequorea is a name of a project made by a Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut. You may say that city on water is not a new thing. But what if we tell you it’s going to be made out of garbage?

According to the project, the floating city consists of massive domes made from algae and garbage from the great Pacific garbage patch off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

It draws its name from a type of bioluminescent jellyfish called aequorea victoria so the domes have a similar design.

These underwater eco-villages could house up to 20,000 people each in the future.

Citizens or so-called aquanauts will live, work and farm within jellyfish-inspired sub-aquatic hubs built with plastic sea trash using 3D printing technology.

The Aequorea would house science labs, offices, hotels, sports fields and farms across 250 floors and reach a depth of up to 1,000 meters (3,280 feet).

Seawater would be desalinated for drinking, microalgae would recycle organic waste, and light would be provided through bioluminescence.
