China’s New Floating Cities


Architecture firm AT Design, with offices in London and China, recently unveiled a master plan for its enormous “Floating City” project, which is designed to be energy-efficient, zero-carbon, and self-sufficient.

[T]he project is commissioned by the state-owned China Communications Construction Company (CCCC). The city comprises several tessellated prefabricated hexagonal modules which form the floating islands spanning four square miles.

It uses the same technology that built the 31-mile bridge between Hong Kong, Macau, and Zhuhai, also built by CCCC.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
