Through this project, we want to help those who are facing the growing water level and flood crisis while living in marine coastal areas, because every year, about five lakh people are forced to leave their home due to the crisis of flood.
According to the project report, the city will be divided into different areas according to housing, research and entertainment.
Every lamp in the city will have six corners. People will be able to go from one island to another by boat. Also, high-rise buildings will not be constructed in the city. The height of the buildings shall not exceed seven storeys so as to protect them from the effects of strong winds.
Food prepared from seafood and plant based diet will be available in the city. This city will prepare its own food. Also, there will be a system of clean water here. The houses will be made from locally available materials like bamboo etc. Also, a layer of limestone will be mounted on them.
According to the project report, the city will generate its own electricity through solar energy as per its requirement. For this, solar panels will be installed on the roofs of the houses.
In a way, this city will be self-sufficient. , There will be a market in the city, buyers will be able to go from one island to another through boat.
