The hotel is called “floating Behemoth”, although in form it rather resembles a shell. The architects themselves call their project Ark, since the hotel should be erected on the same principle as that of Noah’s ark – uniform arrangement of ropes and arches that distribute the weight so that the structure becomes invulnerable to any of the elements.

In the design used solar panels and a rainwater collection system, i.e. “the ark” can exist autonomously. The need for artificial lighting is minimal, since the structure is transparent.

The atmosphere inside is close to the greenhouse and, consequently, in the hotel you can grow any plants. This will improve air quality and will provide guests with food, in the event that they really will one day have to go to forced swim on the ark.

The project was developed in the framework of the program of liquidation of consequences of natural disasters.
