It looks like a cross between Noah's Ark and something out of a 1970s science-fiction film. The futuristic Ark Hotel has been designed to withstand floods caused by rising sea levels.

The floating behemoth is a 'biosphere' conceived as a safe, self-contained haven in case of disaster. Boasting a green, self-sustaining environment for guests, the shell-shaped hotel would withstand tidal waves and other natural disasters.

在好莱坞罗兰·艾默里奇著名的电影《2012》中,我们看到了在电影人脑海中那气宇轩昂的“中国制造”诺亚方舟。如今有建筑师“设计” 出在内部有完整生物圈、生态系统的超级奢华蛋形“诺亚方舟酒店”,这个酒店号称可以抵御任何自然灾害的袭击,比如洪水、地震,比如在电影2012中看到的海平面升高造成的悲剧,因为设计图中看到的酒店造型太过梦幻,有人把它联想到诺亚方舟。
The design uses solar panels and a rainwater collection system to provide inhabitants with power and water. The greenhouse-like environment also provides for lush vegetation to help with air quality and provide food sources.Because of the see-through structure enough daylight is filtered through internal rooms to reduce the need for lighting. And to ensure quality of light, the frame is protected with a self-cleaning layer.
