Come The Revolution…

Behold: the Eco-Floating Hotel, designed by Turkish design studio Hayri Atak Architectural, soon to be located in the Persian Gulf off Qatar.

Powered by solar panels and wind turbines, desalinating and purifying seawater for use onsite, the hotel’s circular volume rotates once every 24 hours – generating power via tidal energy. The glass vortex-shaped roof of the 35,000m² structure doubles as a ‘rainwater collection’ system for greenery.

The project is due for completion in 2025.

    That looks really cool! They have similar projects for floating houses and villages in the Netherlands, with rising sea levels, we need to think more about this way of living.

      Surely it would just be easier to let whatever is on the coast become submerged and move inland, I’m sure rising sea levels won’t result in a Waterworld scenario…this looks more like a pet project for the rich.

        This particular project is a pet project for the rich, but there are more practical versions of a similar thing happening in the Netherlands, house boats, floating farms, floating communities. Look it up on youtube, amazing engineering.
