The Ark: Floating Hotel Designed By Remistudio
It looks like a cross between Noah's Ark and something out of a 1970s science-fiction film. The futuristic Ark Hotel has been designed to withstand floods caused by rising sea levels. The floating behemoth is a 'biosphere' conceived as a safe, self-contained haven in case of disaster. Boasting a green, self-sustaining environment for guests, the shell-shaped hotel would withstand tidal waves and other natural disasters.
'The Ark is an attempt to answer the challenges of our time.
'Provision is made for an independent life support system.
'All the plants are chosen according to compatibility, illumination and efficiency of oxygen producing, and with the aim of creating an attractive and comfort space.
'Through the transparent roof there is enough light for plants and for illuminating the inner rooms.'
