Green 'Ark' could house 10,000 -- and looks like a Slinky!

This is very cool. I can imagine this might just be the way we will be living soon.

www.cnn.com...



Could a floating dome that can house up to 10,000 people be a model for future living?

Russian architect Alexander Remizov thinks so -- and his prototype design, called "The Ark," bears more than a passing resemblance to the classic children's toy, the Slinky.

Remizov believes his Ark, designed to be constructed from timber, steel and high-strength ETFE plastic, could be adapted for all kinds of environments and put to a number of different uses, including emergency housing -- its prefabricated structure should allow it to be constructed quickly -- and hotels. He's even suggested a variation with a honeycomb-style hull that can float.

I thought about that movie too. I saw the picture of it on Yahoo yesterday. I think I would probably be more concerned about getting sea sick.

Great idea, but I'm just not about the waters around here, perhaps a little to bumpy for such a thing to be happy on the waters, and I guess the waters around here are quite chilled compared to some places in the world.. Imagine doing a 360degree spin in it


Apart from that I'd prefer a "personal" use one.. sail it around, dock with friends, sail to work, then sail into the sunset looking for a decent pub..
now that's more my cup of tea


ETA: Then I get to call myself "Captain"

Great ideal,
Just picture how ten or twenty of these around Port au Prince, Haiti could help house the people and aid in the stability of the country. remember they don't need to be as elaborate or high tech. The large wind turbine at the top would supply power and a proper black/gray water system could be built next to it until the more advanced systems for recovery can be built / afforded.

I would like to test said structure against hurricanes and tornadoes as well..and fire.

I don't trust the structure by the way it looks....it looks flimsy..

I would rather go with Dome homes.

www.monolithic.com...

Read up on them and you will see why I like them so much.
