Moonbat Tech: Coral Reef Haitian Eco-Village
As Haiti marches onward towards reconstruction, Vincent Callebaut continues to pump out amazing concepts for utopian eco villages for Haitians. Inspired by the organic form of coral, Callebaut proposes Coral Reef, a plug-in matrix for 1,000 Haitian families. Built upon seismic piers off the coast of the mainland, the prefabricated, modular units can be fit into a wave-like matrix as space is needed. Each family would have a plot of land to grow their own food, and their passive home would minimize energy usage, while renewable energy sources would make the entire project carbon neutral.
Why is Haiti allegedly marching “onward towards reconstruction”? Because last year it was devastated by one of the earthquakes that are common there — though not as common as hurricanes.
The hurricanes ought to set those windmills to spinning, at least until the entire architectural joke falls over on top of them.
