0 Floating Island

Floating Island | Ever daydream about having your own private island? Those dreams are about to get a little more high-tech. Meet the Solar Floating Resort (SFR), a concept design by Michele Puzzolani. This miniature private resort can sleep six people and features an underwater observation room as well as an on-deck Jacuzzi. It’s also covered in thin-film photovoltaic panels to soak up all those rays.
The eco-friendly qualities of this design go beyond just solar power. The designer explains, “SFR has been designed with the industrial viewpoint of fabricating repetitive standard elements, using moldingtechnology. This way, the master molds can reproduce hundreds of pieces cutting down considerably the fabrication costs, like in the car industry. Therefore, the main originality of SFR resides in its modular system that permits to construct all the parts in a factory,  transport them by containers on site by ground, air or sea and to assemble the whole in a few weeks, like a ‘Lego.’”
