We have always been dreaming about how our future would look like, with flying cars and aliens doing our jobs, everything being automatic and comfortable. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? It definitely does. We are developed and some countries are developing, and the day we see what we've been dreaming of is not very far behind. The technology we have been promising and it is developing the world into greater and better place. Our dreams of future are very soon to be true, not all maybe but yes some of them definitely will.
The city to be is named as 'Marines' which means 'oceanite' in French. Mr. Rougerie sees himself as a 'marine' which means someone who is at one with the sea, so he told in a radio station programme. He also said that he feels extremely good underwater, like a very different person. He feels that he gets totally different aspects and idea underwater.
It is currently under construction and the estimated amount is $50 million.
Inner lagoon would accommodate marine research vessels. This would also include the creator, Mr. Rougerie's SeaOrbiter which is an ocean skyscraper and floating lab.
So there are people who love the sea but can't get a home near it or something. So for such people, a new hope is rising. The futuristic floating city will be the perfect home for such people. Jacques Rougerie, the French architect, designed the vessel that is shaped like a manta ray. It can be the inspiration for floating residencies or cruise ships in the near future.
The giant city of Marines would be approximately 2,950 ft long, 1,650 ft wide.
The city would be sustainable and autonomous. It would run on completely renewable energy and it would not produce any waste whatsoever.
Mr. Rougerie envisions the vessel he created as a universal city. It would occupy around 7,000 people with many facilities like classrooms, research labs and everything.
