The Floating Ark Hotel “Protects From Hurricanes, Earthquakes, and Other Natural Disasters
This is a very interesting and thoughtful piece of work “The Floating Ark Hotel”. This Ark is the 2012 version of what the bible’s Noah ark spoke of. The Diaphragm below shows you some of the specs on how this Constructed masterpiece works using the natural supply of the atmosphere. It is said to be Natural disaster proof, but how has it been tested? Is it all speculation
If you’re a nervous traveller, a new hotel that can protect against natural disasters could be right up your street.
Award-winning architects have designed a modern-day Noah’s Ark to withstand floods caused by rising sea levels.
The floating Ark Hotel is a man-made ‘biosphere’ designed to be a safe, self-contained haven in case of disaster.
Boasting a green, self-sustaining environment for guests, the shell-shaped hotel would withstand tidal waves and other natural disasters.
Architects say the Ark’s shell-like construction of arches and cables evenly distribute weight so it is also invulnerable to earthquakes.
The design uses solar panels and a rainwater collection system to provide inhabitants with power and water
Alexander Remizov of Remistudio said: “For architecture there are two major concerns. The first is maintenance of security and precautions against extreme environmental conditions and climate changes.
“The second one is protection of natural environment from human activities.
“The Ark is an attempt to answer the challenges of our time. Provision is made for an independent life support system.
“All the plants are chosen according to compatibility, illumination and efficiency of oxygen producing, and with the aim of creating an attractive and comfort space.
“Through the transparent roof there is enough light for plants and for illuminating the inner rooms.”
The structure would work on both land and water – but it kind of looks like a giant snail, doesn’t it?
