We reside in a planet made mostly of water and we are creatures also consisting of mostly water and yet only a few of us live their lives with it, and much fewer in it. Only a few understand how to appreciate it, little by little, inch by inch the earth is losing its earth surface. Thus, sustainable floating architecture. As radical as its concept may be, this innovative technique could just be our perfect escape from the nature’s rage.
A Floating sustainable resort and marine observatory conceptually situated mainly in Cagayan Ridge Marine Biodiversity Corridor, Sulu Sea, (approximately 200km east of Puerto Princesa, Palawan coast and 20km north of the perimeters of Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park) this is to answer the Philippines need for a way to boost people’s awareness regarding the conservation of the marine biodiversity with the construction of a monumental tourist magnet by which the country can be easily known for.
SECURITY AND RISK MANAGEMENT
Provision for Security Office modules around the area/perimeter of the resort catering to Sonar Equipped Surface Vessels that detects incoming vessels and/or natural threats.
TOURIST EXPERIENCE, UNIQUENESS AND AESTHETIC QUALITY
The unique design and function of the building will pull in tourists from all over the world. Being one of a kind and more than one kind will give users an incomparable experience.
The idea is to use modules for the stability of the ship as it is the most practical way of design and construction. The whole resort is made up of numerous vessels using the same technique in their hull design, this makes possible different configurations for the resort and infinite possibilities for expansion.
