A group of architects from Serbian have designed a set of floating inverted ‘seascrapers’ which would function as self-sustaining facilities that convert ocean litter into energy.
Like icebergs, the seascrapers would be largely submerged. They are designed to float, collect garbage and recycle plant matter while travelling in the ocean.
The seascrapers would contain trash collection units at the bottom, recycling plants in the middle and housing and recreational zones above sea level.
Each structure would have a central hole to allow for mass to be adjusted. When large amounts of trash are collected, water is released to stabilise the structure.
