This is an example of what the distant future might hold when it comes to architecture, our reliance on renewable resources, and dealing with overpopulation on land. Covered completely in a photovoltaic skin, the resort is 100% self-sufficient and non-polluting they call it “Solar Floating Resort”. This amazing structure is designed by Michele Puzzolante. The floating palace is actually a modular system that divides into much smaller components that can be moved and assembled almost anywhere.
Michele Puzzolante takes the problem of rising sea levels very seriously, he though of making the Solar Floating Resort self sufficient. The floating resort has a thin-film solar skin attached to a lightweight fiberglass hull.
The island has a round shape, it is constantly exposed to sunlight, which means that the batteries are fed non-stop during the day to provide clean energy at night.
The island features an underwater observation room, a PV thin-film skin and an on-deck Jacuzzi.
Besides, the interior skin of the balsa of the island is covered with dye-sensitized thin-film PV that captures artificial light at night, making a 30 millimeter vacuum with the outer layer.
The deck has an area of 110 sq. meters and offers enough space for 6 guests. Every room on the floating island offers a beautiful view.
