Amazing Concept Buildings

1. Lilypad Island

This may fall in the first category we mentioned above, but the sheer audacity in dreaming up such a project needs to be applauded. Architects like Vincent Callebaut really push imagination and creativity.

According to forecasts of the GIEC (Intergovernmental group on the evolution of the climate), the ocean level should rise from 20 to 90 cm during the 21st Century with a status quo by 50 cm (versus 10 cm in the 20th Century). Award-winning Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut visions Lilypad as a permanent refuge for those whose homes have been submerged in water due to ocean rise caused due to global warming.

The ‘Lilypad City’ can house 50,000 inhabitants and would float around the world as an independent and fully self-sutainable luxurious super home. With lakes, artificial mountains for scenery, solar panels, wind tunnels and powerstations to harness wave energy, and no roads and no cars, Lilypad looks one clean green mega city.

2. Songjiang Hotel


The beauty of this hotel is the way in which it negotiates the rugged terrain. The challenge involved designing a sustainable hotel in a quarry.

The hotel uses geothermal energy for electricity and heat, a green roof, and natural cooling properties of the quarry itself and yeah, Bungee jumping for guests!

You got to say Atkins did an awesome job. In case you are rubbing your chin thinking that the name does sound familiar, these are the guys who built the Burj Al Arab.





3. Dynamic Architecture - Rotating Tower

Bored with seeing the same scenery everytime you look out of the window? Check out the Rotating Tower by David Fischer which is a building in which each floor has the capability to rotate on its axis and face a different direction according to the resident’s preferences. In addition the building is able to produce its own energy from wind

4. Infosys Building, Kuwait


The proposed Infosys building in Kuwaits reminds us of DNA strands interlocked together. We are told that the building would keep on rotating.

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

They're very convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. May just you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

I think that everything posted was actually very reasonable.
However, consider this, suppose you added a little information?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title to maybe grab people's attention?
I mean "Amazing Concept Buildings" is a little boring. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create article titles to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
