Underwater Ocean City Syphby Arup Biomimetics
Forty years from now, Australia, as well as the rest of the world, could look dramatically different — possibly even underwater, like this ‘Ocean City’ concept by Arup Biomimetics. Dubbed Syph, the proposed underwater city, results when land begins to disappear and the value of what remains sky-rockets, and people are unable to afford living on land. Syph evolves into a collection of organisms with specialized functions like energy generation and sustainable food production that work together to form a new underwater city. Ocean City is just one of many designs in a competition to design Australia’s future as part of the “Now + When Australian Urbanism Exhibition“.
