The Aerohotel is the latest concept design by Russian architect Asadov. A system of supports anchored to the ground keep the structure aloft while creating the impression that it would fly away if it weren’t tethered.
If you wish to have some ocean fun and own a private island, then Floating Pleasure Islands by the Finnish Company will definitely leave you wheezing. These will be built on concrete pontoons and will be fixed by anchors in the seabed. The cable anchors will be of Seaflex rubber, which will let the island go up and down as per the sea level. The heavy duty EPS filled concrete platform is quite durable and in turn stabilizes the overall structure. The artificial islands will have beautiful beaches and hills plus growing soil for plants and palms, which will give them a surreal appearance. These structures will have minimal impact on the sea bed and will not get in the way of water currents.
“A Dubai-based joint venture has developed a floating island concept which it says could answer the needs of owners of islands in Nakheel’s The World project”
Why do you fly when you have no wings?
