GIEC's report on the Ocean

September 2019



The new special report of #UN experts #GIEC published today examining the ocean confirms the global change of the marine world.
To answer the problematic of sea level rise, our architecture agency offers the Polynesians, for the Maupihaa Atoll, a floating village project for 5000 inhabitants. The biomimetic architectural concept gives this project a specific identity based on a strong symbolism echoing Polynesian culture and traditions and incorporating the latest environmental innovations.
In order to minimize the impact on the lagoon's biodiversity, the floating structures are designed in order to let the sun go deep into the sea.
