Blue Halo
” The Ocean Calls”

Akarsh U Vagman & Nirali Salian

The earth's temperature is rising and melting the glaciers at the poles, increasing the global seawater level. In about 100 years, many coastal cities would submerge underwater. Therefore, there arises a need to think about the future evolution of human habitation.
The earth itself has 71% of the water on its surface on which humans can dwell if designed sensibly by keeping marine ecology and human necessity in mind. Floods, unstoppable fires, and polluted air have embraced the earth, the food supply has collapsed, and the rising ocean levels have all forced humans out of their habitat.
Would it even be possible to live on the land the way we have used to live for thousands of years?
The year is 2121.
The settlement on Mars and the Moon will grow, so will the settlement on the ocean.
The land is no longer hospitable for humanity, and we have transformed our whole way of living to adjust to life in the ocean – the only safe place left. We have remodeled architecture into technological homes that react to dramatically altered situations, supplied with energy and clean air by awe-inspiring structures on the ocean. They are engineered to float on the surface. Filtered air and electrical power are provided through pipes connected to the energy supply structures underwater. The new way of existence might not certainly be easy for adaptation, but it probably is one of the only prospects of survival.

"An endeavor for survival with a unique approach to form a distinctive civilization on water."

Our project aims to acknowledge that the world has a great deal of inequality, injustice, and misery and that humans need social interaction for survival at the same time. This co-living space is self-reliant for most of the needs of the inhabitants. It functions by harvesting its own resources. Artificial methods for soil cultivation have been used as alternatives for the lost land to bring back the green life. Conversely, humans are also the prime reason for the harm that has occurred to the planet.
The initial thought was to procure the extent we lost because of sea-level rise while taking on a more accountable lifestyle. The pod is a module with a photo-voltaic roof system that acts as the primary energy source.
The streamlined floorplate has a floating technology that lets the structure semi-submerge. The co-living project aims to provide the users with their private, semi-private, and public space, is self-sustaining, and makes a more responsible effort at living.
