In the event of an impending natural or man-made disaster, the structure could be quickly built and readied for use within three to four months. The building itself is easily adaptable to all kinds of environments. With an interior space of roughly 151,000 square feet, the structure could house some 10,000 people, acting kind of like a Noah’s Ark. Coincidentally, the tubular slinky-like structure has actually been dubbed “the Ark.”
Scientist Lev Britvin also had a hand in the project and designed a micro-climate controlled indoor jungle for the Ark. Powered solely by wind and solar energy, the building would be totally self-sufficient as it floats atop epic flood waters in search of dry land.
Remizov believes the Ark is suitable for a myriad of uses – from apartments to offices to hotels to temporary housing. The size of the building is also scalable, to provide protection for populations of 50 to 10,000 people.
This Ark is aimed at being one of the answers to surviving severe or mutable external conditions, while also safeguarding the environment from human impact.
