Design intentions
Ideas concept is to create artificial land and adequate infrastructure with a view to a large agglomeration of human existence.
The concept of architecture is the answer in the light of the problems closely related to globalization and the human impact on the environment, as well as continuity in the perdition of human rights in connection with the growing process to create a global bank and corporate influence on the shaping of international law. In a nutshell: the rise of sea water and high taxes. The island can create a new state with its own government and economic policy.

    Hey come on guys. You need this kind of stuff in order to boost inspiration. You have to let it all flow one in a while, there are loads of stuff in here that can be used in other projects. In a some what toned down version, sure.

    Everything that is fun in life is irrational.
