New York-based firm 'WORKac' teamed up with art collective 'Ant Farm' to create this conceptual floating city design plan. The project was inspired by old drawings, which were actually lost in a fire.

In an act to restore and redevelop the partially salvaged old drawings, the plans rapidly unfolded. The design plan features past inspiration with modernized ideas that filled in the gaps of the lost drawings from the archives. The drawings were turned into a floating city design, which is called '3-C.CITY: Climate, Convention, and Cruise.'

By combing old visions with modern ideas, it allows two radically different views to combine into one cohesive plan. The installation is currently set up at the Chicago Architecture Biennial, which is where it will remain until January 2016.
