Seas of the World

In 2010 the inhabitants of the virtual world decided to build a real city, designed on principles of sharing, networking resources, ecological symbiosis: an offshore city free an island … they have one mission: clean up the cities, transforming them polluting carbon dioxide they exploit the biochemical energy algae.

With they produce biofuels and raw materials, proteins, vitamins, they invented the facades of photosynthetic algae culture from carbon dioxide they have developed in an urban island inspired by the worlds reefs, floating, and an urban cooperative assemblable recomposable, they use water to move, they assembled their city like bees, they exploit the energies of the sea, they built a dense urban vertical, perforated.

A three-dimensional urban mixed they sought an architectural model for their photosynthetic towers and three-dimensional structure tree, she made a three-dimensional landscape, a world air alternative golden boys, they threw their range to suit a tertiary world of conditioning they dream of faraway islands tired business centers sanitized they imagined facades of homes, porous concrete, foam and nutritious hosting a wild vegetation and island looks like a jungle sometimes ….

They use the architecture of cities such as production tool …

Avec ils produisent des biocarburants et des matières premières, des protéines, des vitamines ils ont inventé des façades photosynthétiques de culture d’algues à partir de gaz carbonique ils ont développé une urbanité en archipel, inspirée par les mondes coralliens, flottante, une urbanité coopérative assemblable et recomposable, ils utilisent l’eau pour se déplacer, ils ont assembles leur ville comme les abeilles, ils exploitent les énergies de la mer, ils ont construit une urbanité verticale dense, ajourée.

Une urbanité mixte en trois dimensions ils ont cherché un modèle architectural pour leurs tours photosynthétiques et une structure en trois dimensions arborescente, elle compose un paysage tridimensionnel, un univers aérien, golden boys alternatifs, ils ont jeté leurs panoplie tertiaire pour s’adapter à un monde dé climatisé ils rêvent d’îles lointaines fatigués des centres d’affaires aseptisés ils ont imaginé des façades de logements, en béton poreux, alvéolaire et nutritif accueillant une végétation sauvage et leur île, parfois resemble à une jungle….

Ils utilisent l’architecture des villes comme outil de production…

The Seas reveal many vast and diverse energy sources which are too often considered individually, for instance the energies of wind, wave, sea currents, tides, solar energy including marine photosynthesis, geothermal and ocean thermal differential energy. Also, some renewable energy sources, often converted on land, can be more efficiently sea based, wind energy being a typical example, where land features reduce its intensity and limit its locations. Land based wind farms have proved themselves to be visually unacceptable to many, whilst solar farms often occupy too much valuable land.
