With global warming driving the melting of glaciers, researchers predict a sharp rise in sea levels that could stifle some of the world’s largest metropolitan cities built near the coasts of the sea as well as the rivers. This is the reason that architect Juan Castanos plans to build self-sustaining amphibious cities that will host and help humanity in a world where floods are recurrent globally. Castanos, based in the United States, is working on a project to alleviate recurring flooding problems in the world and has come up with the idea of a unique amphibious house design. He is launching a campaign to raise funds in the coming days. This innovative and sustainable home makes use of cutting edge technologies, including energy-saving systems and accessories.
