An ambitious concept by Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut for an oceanic city made from a 3D printed combination of algae and recycled rubbish. The jellyfish-like, marina-domed ‘seascrapers’ extendable up to a kilometre deep, would feature renewable energy sources and sustanable food in the form of vegetable gardens, plankton, algae and mollusc farms.

One of many sustainable/renewable/optimistic concepts that can be viewed at Callebaut’s website.

    He may have just watched ‘A Bugs Life’ but I like this whole concept of marine / submarine living.

      Remember though, it’s just a fantasy of a guy with a pirated version of Photoshop and better drugs than we have…who doesn’t like his neighbours.
      It isn’t real.
      You can’t go there.

    “…extendable up to a kilometre deep” – they certainly won’t be as bright as those in the drawings if they extend down more than a few feet.

        BS, will you please correct that missing ‘>’ for me?

        And please, do it properly this time.
        Don’t just remove all formatting like you did before.
        Thanks.

        And then delete this.
        (I feel like I have to ask. That’s wrong,)
