When all is lost: The Ark, by Alexander Remizov.
Text: Detail Daily
The recent meteor strike over Russia has shaken anybody who thought that these things only happened in the minds of scientists and film makers.
It is fortuitous therefore that a Russian architect, Alexander Remizov, has created a proposal for an Ark able to withstand floods and earthquake. It raises the question as to what provision we should make for disaster recovery?
The Ark is a kind of hotel that could house around 10,000 people. It would be self-sufficient, environmentally friendly, creating its own energy from heat recovery, solar gain and wind turbines. The plants in the atrium spaces also help to provide oxygen. According to the architect it could be constructed in three to four months.
But what do the survivors eat?
