Land islands protect Japanese tsunami

Consequences of catastrophic tsunamis are well known. A new approach to the construction of settlements can make a difference, unless, of course, Japan has enough funds for such activities.

Keichiro Sako of Tokyo company Sako Architects drafted Tohoku Sky Village, which involves the construction of artificial islands in the shape of high cylinder prestressed concrete.

Inside the concrete cylinders pierced "rays" extending from the center to the circumference, like spokes in a bicycle wheel. The thickness of the outer walls of each of the "islands" — 50 cm, the same thickness, and the walls of the "rays". To mitigate the

There are building the city-arks.

Deficit areas in the Japanese islands spodvig grand project scientists to create new islands. Huge "arks" to represent floating islands, which will drift on the waves. They will be located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Each of these arks will be installed on a grand platform, with a total area of ten hectares and a height of one kilometer. These islands should fit up to 50 000 people, provided with all necessary. Every detail of this design will have a weight of about 10 000 tonnes.
