Though we usually concentrate our attention on interior design, every now and then we take a look at innovative ideas in architecture that could become part of tomorrow’s homes. It is for featuring these ideas we have the Futuristic Building Design Concept section on our blog.
Some of the ideas featured below are a bit far-fetched and exist only in visualizers dreams, some maybe in the making and some of the buildings may already exist now.
1. Lilypad Island
This may fall in the first category we mentioned above, but the sheer audacity in dreaming up such a project needs to be applauded. Architects like Vincent Callebaut really push imagination and creativity.
According to forecasts of the GIEC (Intergovernmental group on the evolution of the climate), the ocean level should rise from 20 to 90 cm during the 21st Century with a status quo by 50 cm (versus 10 cm in the 20th Century). Award-winning Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut visions Lilypad as a permanent refuge for those whose homes have been submerged in water due to ocean rise caused due to global warming.
The ‘Lilypad City’ can house 50,000 inhabitants and would float around the world as an independent and fully self-sutainable luxurious super home. With lakes, artificial mountains for scenery, solar panels, wind tunnels and powerstations to harness wave energy, and no roads and no cars, Lilypad looks one clean green mega city.
2. Dynamic Architecture – Rotating Tower
Bored with seeing the same scenery everytime you look out of the window? Check out the Rotating Tower by David Fischer which is a building in which each floor has the capability to rotate on its axis and face a different direction according to the resident’s preferences.
In addition the building is able to produce its own energy from wind. Check out the video here
Okey Thats was Futuristic Building Design Concept, i will write again more Futuristic Building Design Concept for you in next post
