Sub-Biosphere 2 Is The First Self Sustained Underwater Habitat Designed For Long Term Human, Plant, And Animal Co-habitation

If you plan on spending the rest of your life in a place where you never thought you’d end up, the Sub-Biosphere is the place for you. This amazing structure is a self sustained underwater facility designed for aquanauts, tourists and oceanographic life scientists. But the line up doesn’t stop here, the facility is also prepared to house long-term human, plant and animals co-habitation, bringing harmony into this small underwater world. The designer, Phil Pauley, fitted everything life needs to survive in the Sub-Biosphere 2. This unique underwater habitat sustains all its life support systems for fresh air, drinkable water, food, always needed electricity and other resources through it’s innovative control of variant atmospheric pressure which occurs at depth.

The Sub-Biosphere 2 is a seed bank with eight living biomes to allow human, plant and fresh water interaction, powered and controlled by the central support biome which monitors the life systems from within its own operations facility. The living biomes have docks for the ships to arrive and bring the people who will live there. The whole structure is fitted on a lift system which creates a controlled sinking for the Sub-Biosphere to do the magic of sustaining life itself. This lift system also helps the structure come back to the surface. The eight living biomes are interconnected through tubes which lead to the center biome. The Sub-Biosphere 2 is a futuristic and alternative habitat that a lot of us would consider moving into.

  1. If I had a ton of residual income, I might think about living in a place like this. It seems like an upscale version of waterworld. I wonder if we'd end up using earth/dirt as a form of currency since it would be such a rare commodity.

  2. amazing! it will be perfected as soon as you have everything a country club has like weight machines, a running track, basketball courts, game room, lounge, and locker room

  3. I reject your comments. Instead, I'd choose something different. I'd choose the IMPOSSIBLE. I'd choose…RAPTURE!!!
    This may be more affordable, more safe-looking and more…possible…than Rapture. And Rapture may currently be a dystopic, hostile city full of psychotic, knife-wielding drug addicts (then again, so is Detroit), but I'm a sucker for Art Deco, biopunk, and underwater cities where you can hurl lightning bolts. None of that does this 70's-esque attempt to recreate Poseidon's balls have. Still, I admit, next best thing.

  4. What a waste of resources, I think the designer didn't think this through. It won't exist because once investors come on board, they will see with calculations that this thing is going to suck up a lot of money. It needs a redesign if it's going to be profitable and sustainable.
