Belgian architect Vincent Callebot has developed a conceptual design for underwater skyscrapers that can seat 20, 000 people. Environmentally friendly structures, declared in the concept, do not need to use fossil fuels, since they themselves produce the necessary energy and heat. The author has no doubts that as the project progresses, the level of harmful emissions into the atmosphere will steadily decrease.
Each underwater oceanic skyscraper in its internal structure resembles the structure of a jellyfish. The entrance and moorings are on the surface, and the underwater part in the form of a spiral goes to a depth of 1000 meters. The interior of the underwater home will house offices, workshops, science laboratories, marine farms, crop growing areas and lawn parks.
It is planned to satisfy the need for drinking water at the expense of its own power plant, which will use the pressure of in-depth counteraction to osmotic pressure and the separation of water from salt. Air renewal will be carried out by convection through the wind pipes located above or with the help of an oxygen station. Food for the inhabitants of underwater skyscrapers will be provided by coral reefs, fishing and their own farms.
Vincent Callebot believes that underwater skyscrapers will form the basis of ecological villages scattered across the world's oceans, measuring 500 meters wide and 250 stories deep. The cost of one underwater residential square meter will be £ 1, 430.
