Seabed City: Japanese Company Designs Underwater Ocean Spiral

The ‘Earth Factory’ portion of the project below is set to use   generate eco-friendly energy from temperature differentials and organically-driven chemical conversion processes. Designed by the Shimizu Corp’s, the spherical portion of the so-called Ocean Spiral forms a residential and commercial core from which a winding path spirals   9 further miles into the deep, ultimately terminating at the ocean floor. Occupants would live and work both in triangular neighborhoods along the periphery as well as within a tapering, hourglass-shaped, skyscraper-like segment stretching up from the bottom to the top of the sphere’s center.

Slated to cost over $25 billion and take 5 years to complete, this incredible   proposal starts a with a living sphere that spans over   1,500 feet below the surface of the ocean.
