The Bloom is a futuristic take on marine farming designed by French firm Sitbon Architectes that was chosen as one of 5 finalists for the first Architizer A+ Awards in the “architecture and weather” category. The spherical structure is well designed to be a semi-submersible laboratory garden, cultivating microscopic marine organisms famous as phytoplankton that produce oxygen and aid in plummeting the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The floating structure is espically designed to be tethered to the seabed by a series of cables and uses an advanced filtration system to make salt-water into fresh-water for the onboard residents. An everlasting staff of researchers, scientists, and marine biologists would live aboard the vessel, screening the ongoing experiments and using the phytoplankton farms to lower carbon-dioxide levels in areas of requires across the globe. Bloom would also be able to detect infinitesimal changes in the surrounding waters to assist alert nearby nations of impending tsunamis. Eventually, the goal of the project is to address both global warming and the rapidly rising sea-levels.
