A Young Malaysian Researcher has interest to be part of this, any sponsor or donor??????????

Would YOU live in a floating city? Fascinating 3,000ft vessel 'Meriens' shaped like a giant manta ray would be home to 7,000 people without producing any waste

  • With its radical design, the giant City of Meriens would be nearly 2,950ft long and 1,650ft wide 
  • Designed by French architect Jacques Rougerie, who envisions the vessel as a university city
  • City of Meriens would be completely sustainable and autonomous, and produce zero waste

This futuristic floating city could one day be the perfect home for those who love sweeping views of the sea.
Designed by French architect Jacques Rougerie, the vessel is shaped like a manta ray and could serve as inspiration for cruise ships or floating residences of the distant future.

Mr Rougerie, who is celebrated for his imaginative designs for land, sea and space, envisions the vessel as a university city.
It would be home to 7,000 researchers, professors and students for long-term stays, with living quarters, classrooms, laboratories and areas for leisure and sport, The Creators Project reported.

City of Meriens would be completely sustainable and autonomous, with the ability to run on renewable energy and produce zero waste.
The inner lagoon would accommodate marine research vessels, including Mr Rougerie’s SeaOrbiter, an ocean skyscraper and floating lab which is currently under construction for an estimated $50million (£32million).

He coined the term ‘meriens’, which he says is a French equivalent to the term ‘oceanite’.
Mr Rougerie told radio station France Inter that he sees himself as a ‘merien’ – someone who is at one with the sea.
‘I feel very, very good underwater. I feel different. Another type of imagination is awakened in me as soon as I am underwater,’ he told the radio station, as quoted by The Creators Project.
