Panit Limpiti, a student from Thailand, has designed the “Permaculture Floating Tower,” a skyscraper to be located in Omval, Amsterdam that will cater to the region’s worst-case-scenario situation: a flood.

The area above sea level in the Omval zone is quickly decreasing. With the ability to withstand high water levels, and through the design of a floating landscape, this building will stand strong, no matter the weather forecast.

The building will utilize desalination to create drinking water, and will harness wave energy. A bio-digester cooks gas to also produce energy. Bio-diesel is also produced on site. The building is comprised of residential units and an urban park.
