French architect presented an exciting concept of the city on the water – huge ship in the form of almost kilometer stingray – which can hold up to 7000 people. One of the main ideas that such a city would be completely self-contained and will not produce a single drop of waste.
Project «City of Meriens» can be as action-packed the cruise ship, and the floating a residence. The author, known for his creative projects on land, at sea and in space, originally created the design of the university town. It has a length of about 900 meters, a width of 500 meters and will be able to shelter up to 7000 researchers, professors and students for long-term residence – with living quarters, offices, laboratories, sports and lounge areas.
