with regards to the continued melting of the polar ice caps and the greenhouse effect, this danish design can very well be the solution to living in the future. venice is also practically a floating city and soon we would have to move into communities like this. i dont mind the retro look, im actually loving it. i just hope the structure could withstand erratic waves and storms. maybe we need to live within a walled city (like in the waterworld movie) for at least some protection against getting washed off into the ocean. walls kinda brings us back to ancient times but i guess history does have its way of coming to you.
