Lilypad - A Floating Ecopolis.

Lilypad - A Floating Ecopolis.

Vincent Callebaut, a visionary Belgian architect has come up with his proposal 'Lilypad, A Floating Ecopolis' as a solution. Lilypad, a prototype of auto-sufficient amphibious city is a true amphibian - half aquatic and half terrestrial city. It will be able to accommodate 50,000 inhabitants. The floating structure of the Ecopolis is directly inspired by the highly ribbed leaf of the great lilypad of Amazonia Victoria Regia. The goal is to create a harmonious coexistence of humans and nature, exploring new modes of crosscultural aquatic living.
