Floating cities are the future Of Urban Development. At this TEDx, Koen Olthius offers some super-potent mulch for the mind. Olthius, founder of aqua-architecture studio Waterstudios discusses his company’s vision of the city in the future: adaptable, flexible, and directly integrated into the bays and seas that abut so many world metropolis’. His “city apps” concept is feasible, and its logic sound. He may not be far off in his vision considering rising sea levels and the ever-growing need for useable space. My question is, after a hundred years, would these platform blocks become floating slums or the chic-est place in the city place to rest your head?
