‘The Ark’: Floating Hotel

“Designed to be a bioclimatic building, the Ark incorporates several innovative green strategies and elements to ensure that its residents can survive aboard for months at a time.” The Ark can be built in various climates and in seismically dangerous regions because its basement is a shell structure, devoid of ledges or angles.

It sound likes this Ark structure can protect human beings from nuclear disaster and extreme weather. But, it is not a nuclear bunker, it is an ark-shape hotel. When I first read that it is a hotel, I thought it is gonna be some kind of new style hotel that can sail on the ocean.

The Ark can be built in various climates and in seismically dangerous regions because its basement is a shell structure, devoid of ledges or angles.

Is this the future? Peoples live in a closed high tech ark, equipped with some plants, for breathing , with several innovative green strategies, and heat, air and light inside it controlled by machine.

 

The heat from the surrounding environment — the outer air, water or ground — is also used.
