New idea affordable housing?

full_hermithouseIt’s becoming increasingly clear that climate change is the number one threat to mankind…rising sea levels increasingly likely to cause a mass-movement in climate refugees...floating house jacks itself up from turbulent seas on retractable legs, like offshore drilling platform..moveable when necessary…These hermit-like homes..recent architecture exhibition in Italy – can float with tides and uses solar PV to provide electricity. The design was implemented so that it could be joined up with other pods to create floating communities, with its spherical roof protecting against strong winds…As planet becomes more urbanised and the need for rural crop growing becomes more severe, expanding communities out into the oceans may provide a sustainable solution to both urbanisation and food production.
