Sealab 2020
Sealab 2020 is a design by artist animator Pete Mullins which is somehow connected to Sealab 2020,  an American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera.  Scenes from Sealab 2020 were later re-edited and dubbed with new voices by 70/30 Productions to create the series Sealab 2021, which aired on the Adult Swim channel. Or maybe it is not.

Conshelf II - Underwater Habitat
Conshelf II was essentially a small village, built on the floor of the Red Sea at ten meters depth. The main house, the "Starfish," stood next to an aquarium, a garage for the diving saucer and an equipment hangar. A deep station was installed 15 meters further down. Five oceanauts would live for a month in the Starfish base. Two of them would spend a week in the deep station.

Solar Floating Resort by Michele Puzzolante
The ship features a thin-film solar skin applied to a lightweight balsa-reinforced fiberglass hull. The round shape of the vessel provides constant exposure to the sun, feeding batteries during daylight hours to supply clean energy through the night. The interior skin is also layered in dye-sensitized thin-film PV to absorb artificial light at night, creating a 30mm vacuum with the outer layer.

Lilypad floating city
Further to the anthropogenic activity, the climate warms up and the ocean level increases. According to the principle of Archimedes and contrary to preconceived notions, the melting of the arctic ice-floe will not change the rising of the water exactly as an ice cube melting in a glass of water does not make its level rise.

Zigloo - Gyre floating city
Gyre creates a new class of Eco-tourism by bringing scientists and vacationers together to understand what is the least known environment on our planet, the ocean. As much as a skyscraper is an economical method of reducing humankind’s footprint on land, Gyre goes a step further by juxtaposing that footprint to the ocean, and is perhaps its greenest feature.

Trilobus floating home
The main aim of the project is to allow anyone to live in a unique environment through a self-sufficient, nonpolluting dwelling that exists in unison with their ocean surrounding," Zema tells POPULAR MECHANICS. At first glance, the Trilobis looks as if it would be more at home soaring into the sky than plying the waters of atolls, bays and maritime parks.
