The 'Self- Sufficient City: Envisioning the Habitat of the Future' contest has received quite an innovative entry in the hexagonal floating community, which is a series of homes floating on the water.
The zero-emissions community will be in the Halong Bay area and consists of a series of bamboo houses built in a hexagonal shape similar to a beehive. The entire community will be self-sufficient and consists of a school, homes and a hospital. The hexagonal floating community will rely on solar power for its electricity. Sounds pretty innovative.
