The Lilypad is build by Vincent Callebaut that serves as a luxurious future retreat for 50,000 inhabitants seeking for refuge due to rising waters caused by global warming. This floating ecopolis structure is a dramatic display of the most modern and futuristic green innovations.
Callebaut called the Lilypad as a “Floating Ecopolis for Climate Refugees” which features stealth Mercedes branding in its widnows. The Lilypad ecopolis almost looks like a manta ray in design. The floating community’s lower half is submerged and the top extends upward to soak up solar energy and the under portion serves as a bed for natural sea planktons and oceanic plants.
