The Ark

Way back at the dawn of time, Noah may have been absolutely right to build an Ark. It’s what we should all be doing right now, says Alexander Remizov of Russian architects Remistudio. Given that sea levels are set to rise as global climate change continues, it might be wise to have a back-up plan.

The Ark biosphere was conceived by its designers as a green self-sustaining, disaster-proof hotel that could withstand extreme weather conditions like tsunamis and severe flooding. Its Slinky-like shape is also supposed to withstand earthquakes. 

Its solar panels and a rainwater collection system allow residents to live independently, should the power grid shut down.  Meanwhile, the transparent dome acts as a giant greenhouse, allowing for lush vegetation to thrive, and clean the air around it. The vegetation is also a source of food, and the abundant sunlight negates the need for artificial lighting.
