Gulliver's Travels described the flying city of Laputa, where sages, scientists and philosophers lived. And in the near future, perhaps, over our cities will appear, if not flying cities, then flying octopuses. And this will not be an alien conquest at all! These will be flying gardens!
The architectural company Rael San Fratello Architects has developed an unusual project to improve the ecological situation in large cities. Indeed, in the centers of megalopolises there are a lot of cars emitting carbon dioxide and harmful substances into the atmosphere, and very little greenery. These flying octopuses should compensate for the latter.
Yes Yes! Flying octopuses! After all, these flying gardens will look like them. In fact, these will be airships controlled from a distance, entwined with liana-like plants. They will hover over the city center, creating, firstly, a shadow, and, secondly, a green garden where it is sorely lacking.
Such airship-flying gardens will travel from city to city, improving the ecological situation in them. These flying octopuses will receive energy from solar panels installed on their tops. And the built-in GPS system will help them move from place to place.
It looks, of course, very futuristic and unreal. But still, you see, there is a certain amount of rationality in these flying gardens! After all, cities are indeed suffocating from exhaust gases in the absence of a sufficient amount of greenery. The only question is how practical these flying gardens will be.
