Floating cities – is this the future?

Given that 71 per cent of the earth’s surface is water (and that it’s likely to increase), plus the need to retain productive land to support our ever increasing population, maybe concepts like floating cities aren’t as far-fetched as they seem. Further, they might be a necessity rather than a tourist attraction. This also reminds me of the concept ‘floated’ ten years ago to build eco islands in Port Phillip Bay, off the coast of St.Kilda. I’d like to see that.

Take a look at this proposal outlined in The Age recently.
