Aquabolism – Future Mobile Coastal City with Nature-Based System

Aquabolism is a future mobile coastal city. Climate change has impacted our urban life, rising global temperatures causes glaciers to melt and sea levels to rise. In order to adapt, we have to create and learn to live on a floating habitat. This futuristic project aims to address several problems of coastal cities or future cities which suffer from high frequency of floods and tsunamis. It’s a high possibility n the future as we can see how people have made some changes in their lifestyles from reclamation projects, installation of flood control devices everywhere, more temporary bridges, and many more.

Aquabolism has been designed as a set of organic objects with mobility and living space usability. In this scenario, due to frequent flooding, the sea level changes constantly and the utilization of buildings and land also changes accordingly. People who live in these cities still need to reliable and good mobility as well. Aquabolism by Kyeongtae Kim wants to propose solution to these needs. Depending on the situation, these stances can organically adapt to our need, and depending on the utilization of energy, they can be combined or separated from each other.

“It’s important to balance the living space on the water and the usability. I wanted to create an organic structure under the influence of metabolism architecture. Multihull structure must be used in the structure of the ship. The separation of the cabin and the hull allows the cabin to be placed at the top of the building.

There’s a cockfit on the front of the cabin, and the back of the cabin. There are kitchens, bathrooms, and toilets. On the deck, you can grow seaweed or use them as balconies to suit your lifestyle.”
