Busan will now have the first Floating City in South Korea known as Oceanics Busan. However, the most attractive part about this new project is that it is the world’s first prototype of a sustainable floating town. The design of the floating city will have three floating platforms along with the bridges. The UN-Habitat and the New York-based sustainable design company Oceanics will design this mega project.

Light Materials To Be Used

BioRock technology generates such kind of materials that grow, heals themselves, and becomes more assertive with age. The building will not have more than five stories. The manufacturer will use lightweight materials such as wood and bamboo to design the platform structures.
