The largest underwater museum in the world
The sculptures signed by Briton Jason DeCaires Taylor, though famous, can not be seen on the streets no matter how you search for them. That’s because underwater museums are scattered around the world.
Known for similar offshore installations in Mexico and Granada, Jason DeCaires Taylor defines his work as “unparalleled creative paradox” because it is designed to be “assimilated by the ocean, transforms inert objects in coral reefs live and intervention Positive human, defending nature “.
The hotel will be in technically a ship, because it will be able to navigate through the water using electromechanical drive. So, if a hurricane, the hotel can move with ease in a more secure shelter. Those interested in the project you can buy, to be built at the place chosen, after having obtained the authorization necessary. The cost hotel is about 20 million dollars.
The sculptures that the artist makes are molded from a high quality cement, and their life underwater is guaranteed for a period of 300 years. Taylor uses only environmentally friendly materials and the arrangement of his works favors the development of flora and fauna.
For example, in Cancun, biomass increased by 12% since 2009, when he inaugurated an “art collection” by 2013. In addition quantity of fish, crustaceans and molluscs increased by 59-65%.
Jason DeCaires Taylor uses no metal or corrosive material, and his sculptures have a neutral pH and before being immersed in Marre are carefully cleaned.
Usually sculptures are set at a depth between 12 and 15 meters, so the museum can be visited by divers beginners.
Sunken attractions that can be visited
Even if it is more difficult to get into deep waters to visit cities, monuments or even submerged prisons, there are several such places can be admired. Here are just some of them truly spectacular.
Lion City, China At about 30 meters deep in Lake Qiandao Chinese, is drowned millennial city of Leo, which was intentionally flooded by the Chinese government in 1959 to build a hydropower. Towns submerged in Lake Reschen, Italy Lake Reschen, located in Northern Italy, is “decorated” with a turn of the century XIV rising from the water. Most buildings in the two cities, Graun and Reschen were destroyed before the area to be flooded on purpose, but the historic church tower lasted – and he can be reached even when the lake freezes then went in winter.
Potosí, Venezuela After being flooded deliberately, in 1985, to build a hydroelectric city Potosí reappeared to public attention in 2008 when a severe drought hit Venezuela and you began to see more of the facade of the Gothic church of the city .Underwater Prison Rummu, Estonia If you want to enjoy a day of swimming and discover a Soviet prison in 1930 possible. Rummu prison was near a mine that provided working prisoners. When the prison was finally closed, the mine was converted into a lagoon which now attracts adventure enthusiasts and scuba diving. Submerged parts of the prison include fences, furniture and claustrophobic rooms with barred windows.
Yacht that Goes with coral reefs
A South Korean designer imagined a yacht with a special form that is “go along” with perfect coral reefs over which float, writes CNN . Tofi yacht, designed by Kim Hyun-Seok, won the award for design in Seatec Fair in Italy and could soon become reality.
The judges praised the fact that the designer “imaginatively explored the concept of motor boat“. They said that the yacht of 12 meters in length, whose sketches presents inside the craft, “combines natural beauty and recreational activities.”
“I imagined a yacht that has a simple concept, but to catch well. Tofi means enjoyable holidays relaxing and unique experience at sea,” says Kim.
The yacht has two platforms: the bottom allows easy access to the sea (equipped with stairs) and the upper can be used for sunbathing, but can replace and surfboard, for the more adventurous, writes CNN.
Taters, which reaches a maximum speed of 31 km / h, will have four seats, two double cabins. Their outer walls will be transparent, so that will allow natural light and admiring the landscape.
Kim degree in mechanical engineering and design of marine vessels, are already working on a new project: a “superiaht” 125 meters, which will be indoor pool, and a heliport.
