The agriculture sector on the Maldives is facing serious problems such as floods, a lack of fresh water, unsuitable soil, pests and bugs, the rising sea level and a lack of space. This design aims to tackle these problems by introducing a new resilient archicture that consists of a self-sustaining farm, a power plant and a fresh water source. With aquaponic farming as the standard way of farming, current and future agricultural problems the Maldives are facing can be tackled.
The design consists of a greenhouse that is places upon a floating element. With techniques such as a solar pv installation and a desalination, the unit can function off-grid. During heavy floods, the floating element that is constructed of local materials mainly, makes it possible for the greenhouse to float. This adaptability makes the design future proof and easy to duplicate.
