A Subaqueous Future
More InformationShow full item record
A hundred years into the future, humanity and the world will experience dramatic changes. As climate change begins to alter our global environments, humanity must adapt to the changes it brings. The overall increase in global temperatures is melting the polar ice caps and glaciers causing our sea levels to rise dramatically putting over 44% of the world population at risk of being submerged under the sea. As dry land becomes more scarce and human populations of the world continue to increase, a new solution is needed to begin to utilize the 71% portion of the Earth’s surface; the oceans. This thesis explores potential solutions to large population density structure and urban societies on the seas. A replicable and practical project that meets humanities needs while providing the necessary character and biology of a city will be needed in the future. The project will explore the various issues with oceanic structures and subaqueous life in the new cities of the future.
