Headline: Noah’s Arch
Science models predict collapse of civilization as we know it in the next 100 years, if we do not take urgent measures. Floods, unstoppable fires, unprecedented storms, diseases hidden in the melting permafrost, collapse of food supply and mass migration of people and animals are the crisis we are already starting to face. Would it be even possible to live on the land the way we have used to live for thousands of years?
Year is 2120.
Land is no longer hospitable for the humankind and we have transformed our whole way of living to adjust a life in the ocean – the only safe place left. Air is polluted and has become poisonous, enormous fires have embraced the earth, ocean levels have risen and forced people and animals to move out of their habitats, diseases have spread. With the aim to react to the dramatically changed conditions, we have transformed our architecture into an organic jellyfish looking technological homes with variety of functions. Those homes are being supplied with energy and clean air by enormous structures floating into the ocean. Our new homes are engineered to float on the surface when waters are calm and to go deep when powerful storms appear. Filtered air and electrical energy are supplied through pipes, connected to the energy supply structures. The jellyfish homes have variety of functions and connect with each other to exchange goods and services. Most can produce their own food. Some are built to be a shelter for animal and plant species that are being threatened with extinction. Production of supplies is highly restricted in order to protect resources. Up to 8 jellyfish homes can be connected to the energy supply floating structures. That way they form a cluster that can easily move if there is a threat from a thunderstorm or a hurricane. All clusters are connected within a massive wireless network and collaborate between each other.
Our new way of living has not been easy for adaptation but it has become our only chance of survival.
One thing is for certain: humankind will never repeat the mistake to disrespect nature.
