Water City Dubai!

Architectural Concept: Lilypad Floating City
Water City By now, most of us have heard about the Island Cities being built in Dubai , but Inhabitant has just done a feature on a new concept by artist Vincent Callebaut for a self-sufficient floating city that will never have to face a problem about finding land to build on.

Award-winning architect Vincent Callebaut has designed a self-sustainable Lilypad City as a long-term solution to the problem of rising sea levels caused by climate change. A Lilypad City would provide a home for 50,000 people and would float atop water. The artificial island includes a lake, mountains, shopping malls and drifts on the ocean currents.

The Lilypad would take advantage of all of today's green technologies, including generating power from the sun, wind and water, and would produce zero emissions from its residents.. Don't expect to see construction on one of these anytime soon, but don't be surprised if, like the Island Cities in Dubai , real estate starts branching out into the oceans in the next decade.
