City On The Sea

By jooakes 24th November 2021

Oceanix City will be made up of different platforms, all anchored to the seabed.  They will be flood-proof, as they can rise with the sea, and they’ll provide the 10,000 people who live there with fresh food and energy from the water around them.

The Oceanix city is pretty much just a collection of hexagonal platforms perched on top of the water.

Architects consider hexagons to be among the most efficient shapes – like the inside of a beehive. They allow builders to save both space and materials.

Three partners are involved with the project; the city of Busan, UN-Habitat and Oceanix.

The executive director of UN-Habitat, Maimunah Mohd Sharif, said: “Instead of fighting with water, let us learn to live in harmony with it. We look forward to developing nature-based solutions through the floating city concept.”
