Will floating cities be a reality in the next decades or it’s just a big challenge for mechanics and architecture? Alexander Remizov is architect from Russia and founder of REMIstudio.
Alexander Remizov graduated from the Moscow Architectural Institute (MARCHI).In 1995 he founded the architectural studio Remistudio, which entered the top 50 sustainable architectural studios in the World. Author of more than 50 architectural and urban projects and more than 30 articles and publications in the field of sustainable architecture and “green” building.
Modern architecture operates based on two principles. The first one is the protection of any natural disastrous phenomenon and the second is the preservation of the natural habitat. Floating cities as a new-born architectural development, obey to the above mentioned principles.
Even if it sounds like a science fiction scenario, they may provide solutions and answers to the green house effect, to the forever increasing water-sea levels and the dwelling problem. With an emphasis put in the exploitation of the tidal and solar energy, they promise a better management of the energy itself and an ultimate autonomy.
