Zero emission, zero waste, and zero-poverty, this is what Nautilus Eco Resort project wants to achieve. It’s a conceptual Biophilic Learning Center architecture tries to answer the challenge of sustainable development. Designed for Philippines, this futuristic resort would take advantage of its climate, location, and resources. Philippines is facing environmental degradation, the seas are severely threatened with over-fishing, plastic waste, toxic products, mass tourism, and also climate changes. Philippines has more than seven thousands islands and islets, with its 266,000 square kilometers of coastal, turquoise waters and bays, it has become true sanctuaries of marine biodiversity in the world.
Nautilus Eco Resort by Vincent Callebaut is a pioneering eco-resort with complex design to unite scientific community with eco-tourists to optimize the revitalization and protection of a degraded ecosystem. Tourism has great potential to contribute in sustainable development, eco-tourism would support ethical and eco-friendly practice in this resort. The design of Nautilus is based on Biomimicry, it is inspired by shapes, structures, intelligence of materials that exist in living beings.
Nautilus Eco Resort has been designed to house populations and travelers so that they can be actively involved with scientists, engineers, and ecologists to protect environment. This concept creates responsible ecotourism where resources and well being of local populations are responsibly preserved.
