The Japanese Project For The First Underwater City Is Incredible

Around 70 percent of Earth is covered by water, so the idea of settling new cities underwater is a possible option in the future, given that in 2050 the world population will be around 9,6 billion.

A Japanese architecture team published some renderings of a possible underwater city, a project that can be possible to see in 2035, and can host up to 5000 people. The structure extends two miles deep into the sea, and there is space for businesses, hotels and homes. The cost will be around 26 billion dollar, and will be totally Eco-compatible.

Let’s take a look of this stunning project.
