In the next 10 to 15 years rising sea levels could bring irreplaceable changes to our environment. Ocean community is a future mobility vision to deal with rising sea levels. By creating mobile domestic naval units, we transform a disaster zone into a habitable space, using the ocean as a living space. The creation of these new structures will serve as a fully functional living space and be connected with existing infrastructure on land. New ocean communities reside in the ocean, becoming a natural extension of coastal cities. Units are located 800m from the coastlines, close for life on land.
