Floating Whale Garden

Since the Sea Shepherd are into surprises these days, we’d love to see the faces on the Japanese if this thing suddenly appeared. Granted, this giant whale-shaped floating garden isn’t meant to sail the seas, but instead float down rivers and remove pollutants from the water.

It’s the creation of visionary Vincent Callebaut, who sees the “Physalia” as a self-sufficient ecosystem that generates all the power it needs from the sun and works to reduce water pollution through bio-filtration. Inhabitat gives us some details saying,

His newest vision is a floating environment filled with gardens and covered by both a green roof and thin-film solar panels. Hydro-turbines generate power from the moving water underneath the boat, thus, all of the boat’s energy is generated from renewable sources. The craft’s exterior features a layer of TiO2, which reacts with ultraviolet rays to clean the water. Additional water is pumped through the garden systems, which biologically filter out contaminants and pollutants. Inside there are four distinct thematic gardens named, “Earth”, “Wind”, “Fire”, and “Water”, which represent the four elements.
