Floating Country

During the last couple of years there has been an increased awareness of the ecological and urban threats of Global Warming. One of the smallest countries, a series of Polynesian islands, known as Tuvalu will be the first country to flood and disappear with the oceans rise. This project examines the possibility of a floating country built as a series of islands positioned like Tuvalu and interconnected by bridges.

The floating country will use the tide to generate electricity and will have various levels of farmlands, housing, commerce, and recreational parks.
