Like Venice, Bangkok is slowly sinking. Some studies even suggest Thailand’s capital could be completely submerged by water by the year 2030. In response to this trend, Bangkok-based architecture firm S+PBA has proposed the construction of a floating city, which they’ve dubbed “Wetropolis.”
The design keeps everything above water, and all structures are interconnected by roads and walkways. By sitting just above the water, S+PBA says the ebb and flow of the tide won’t damage the city’s structures.
