This wonder will be seen in Busan city of South Korea. Scientists here with the support of the United Nations are developing a prototype of the world’s first floating city. The name of this project is OCEANIX which was announced last year. Now pictures of the new design of this city have come out. As can be seen in the pictures the interconnected platforms will cover a total area of ​​15.5 acres which will give enough space to accommodate 12000 people. It is estimated that a total of $ 200 million or more than 15 billion rupees will be spent in the construction of this floating city, which will be ready by 2025.

The mission is to help the people living on the coastal areas

Philipp Hoffmann, CEO of OCEANIX, said, “We are building the OCEANIX Busan and showing that floating infrastructure can create new ground for coastal cities looking for sustainable ways to cope with the ever-expanding seafloor. are. The project aims to help people living in coastal areas whose existence is threatened by rising sea levels. According to OCEANIX, two out of five people in the world live within 100 km of the coast. Every year, lakhs of people are forced to leave their homes due to floods.

There will be less tall buildings in the city

The city will be divided into different parts with facilities for accommodation, research and accommodation, and the height of the buildings in the city will be low. The company said that the buildings in the city will be less than seven storeys in height so that strong winds do not affect them. The summers in Busan are extremely scorching, so the roofs of the buildings will be shaded which can also be used for solar energy. (Photo Credits: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group)

The city will initially have a capacity of 12,000 residents and guests. Manufacturers say it will be able to expand to 100,000 people in the future. Each of the city’s islands will be hexagonal in shape and will all be covered with a layer of limestone that is three times stronger than concrete.
