The theatrical release of the movie 'Noah' fast approaching is sure to garner Noah's Ark by Aleksandar Joksimovic and Jelena Nikolic, architects hailing from Serbia, even more attention than it has already enjoyed. Inspired by the biblical story that involved a large boat to save plants and animals for a global flood, it is a self-sustaining floating city that is meant to fulfill a similar purpose.
Created for the annual Skyscraper Competition, Noah's Ark by Aleksandar Joksimovic and Jelena Nikolic look like the rice terrace fields found in Philippines and China. According to Inhabitat, "Their innovative water world would support life on terraced fields, grow food, collect rainwater, generate its own power and is engineered to withstand all forms of water-based disasters."
