This Architect Has Designed An Underwater City Of The Future

It’s no secret that the future is formidable when it comes to contending with overpopulation, loss of habitats, and environmental devastation. Add to that the rising sea levels, and it all looks pretty grim.

But it’s also human nature to persevere, and that’s what architect and designer Vincent Callebaut is planning to do.

The Belgian architect has developed enormous plans for developing entire cities in the world’s oceans. Named Aequorea (after a species of bioluminescent jellyfish), Callebaut’s designs for unique homes create beautiful, almost-alien visions of the future.

But what could they possibly be built from? With our world facing shortages of so many materials, there’s one resource we have in abundance: trash.

And while automated trash-collecting machines have been developed to clean oceans — like Mr. Trash Wheel, who’s cleaning up the Jones Falls River and Baltimore Harbor — the trash could still be used for something, maybe even constructing the home of the future.

Callebaut’s plan is to use the thousands of tons of trash in the Earth’s oceans and waterways to build these cities. Combined with algae, the plastics would be broken down and recreated into building materials. The components would be 3D printed and linked together to form futuristic spires and domes for these floating cities.

Check out his concept art for Aequorea, and see if you can imagine living in the ocean and seeing marine life cruising by your windows every day. It’s a pretty mind-bending concept!

Obviously Aequorea still only exists in a concept phase, but it’s designed to be a perfectly sustainable dwelling place for human beings.

Each “village,” like the one seen here, would be capable of supporting 20,000 people.
Light, Callebaut says, would be generated by bioluminescent organisms, and the ocean currents would propel turbines for power and climate control.
Callebaut’s vision even goes beyond the everyday needs of an oceanic city. In his dream of the future, there is economic stability, world peace, and cures for the diseases that plague so many today.
