Physalia- by Vincent Callebaut Architects

These are the stunning designs by Vincent Callebaut Archtects of a self sufficient floating garden, designed to be put into European rivers. It will be run on renewable energy, and provide energy for itself and houses numerous gardens for people to enjoy, as well as a research lab to study the ecosystems in the area the ship covers.

I really like the slimline design, and how it is based on the structure of an aquatic organism. It looks modern, sleek and aesthetically pleasing. I wonder how people would get on though, and whether it would be like a boat trip, or how it is actually going to work. Will it be incorporated into a transport system or just a tourist attraction... but for now we can quit pondering and start admiring- they look so good!
