Floating City, the new totally smart and zero impact floating city
Floating City is the new ambitious project of great value carried out by the architecture studio Luca Curci Architects in collaboration with Tim Fu Design to try to counteract the effects of climate change.
It’s called the Floating City and it’s the first of its kind in Italy to respond to the problem of continuous climate change and rising sea levels that threaten coastal cities around the world.
This ambitious project, which bears the signature of the Italian architect Luca Curci in collaboration with Tim Fu Design as well as the invaluable support of artificial intelligence, aims to be a zero-energy city with a totally green transport system.
But let’s see it better in detail.
What the “Floating City” will be like
The “Floating City” will extend over 10 hectares through a system of interconnected floating platforms. Each will contain buildings equipped with photovoltaic glasses that will supply electricity to the entire floating system and make it energetically independent.
The pride of this new urban system will be the green areas (parks and vertical gardens) designed to keep temperatures, destined to increase in the coming years, under constant control.
In this way, residents will be able to lead a healthier lifestyle, in symbiosis with natural elements.

How the “Floating City” will be powered
The floating city, which will be accessible by sea and by air, will be self-powered by numerous renewable energies such as solar, wind and hydroelectric, as well as systems powered by waves and desalination plants.
In addition, integrated food production and cultivation systems are envisaged with a zero waste management strategy.
Designed to initially host 50,000 inhabitants, it will have the potential to expand and host more than 200,000 people.
When the “Floating City” will be presented
The Floating City will be officially presented at the 2023 Venice Architecture Biennale, which will be held from 20 May to 26 November 2023: an important showcase to go in search of lenders who want to invest in this futuristic project that offers a possible solution to the problem of rising sea levels and climate change.
Once built, the new city will be an authentic smart city, where digital solutions and connections will optimize the lives of citizens.
Utopia or near future?
