Humans may one day be forced to live on the water due to overcrowding. If that becomes the case, I would like to make a case for us to live in the AQVA Habitat. This floating structure can expand and contract to fit population fluxes and can even purify its own water.
The AQVA Habitat was designed by Abel Patacho and Theodora Christoforidou. I could see the AQVA Habitat really taking off in cities that are terribly over-crowded and located near large lakes or oceans. Check out the possible future of urban living in the gallery above.
The AQVA Habitat is Designed for Aquatic Urban Living
1. Aquatic Urban Living - Opportunities for disruptive innovation lie in developing sustainable and adaptable structures for living on water amidst overcrowding.
2. Floating Architecture - Creating innovative designs for floating structures that can address the future requirement for aquatic housing solutions offers new opportunities for architects and designers.
3. Self-sufficient Living - As floating complexes attempt to purify their own water and create electricity, the need for cost-effective solutions for sustainable, independent living will be on the rise.
1. Architecture - The evolution of floating architecture and the design of sustainable homes on water present new opportunities for growth and expansion in the industry.
2. Real Estate - As the demand for aquatic housing grows, the real estate industry will be pushed to enter new markets and create innovative buying and selling options.
3. Environmental Engineering - The rise of self-sufficient living will lead to an increase in demand for environmental engineers to develop and implement new technologies for cleaning and purifying water.
