Underwater Skyscraper 7by De Bever architects
- Evolo Highrise Competition
Water is one of the most basic human needs. A view of our planet from space shows 70,9 % of earths’ surface is covered by oceans. We perceive oceans as the border of the land, urbanization and human activity. For us a challenge to research the possibilities of a skyscraper city in the ocean. This project investigates how colonizing and exploring the ocean can provide us with new working and living possibilities. The challenge is to design a skyscraper that is related to the underwater world as much as to the sky, a building form related to boats and oil platforms. We started to examine a fishing float because of it unique floating capacities and the almost equal relationship to the underwater world and the sky.
