This is what the future of sea nomads might look like in 2050

In 2050, it is said that there will be more “climate refugees” who have lost their homes as a result of climate change than migrants forced to leave their countries due to political problems. In the future, it may happen that people live in mobile homes that will float on the oceans of the world. These people can become a kind of sea nomads and create a unique ecosystem in which they coexist with the natural environment.

When people from different cultural fields live in the ocean, how do they get along with other people or with the environment? This prototype examines the lives of people at sea in the year 2050 and the ecosystem they created in terms of housing. People who live on water can live in floating mobile homes that move freely around the sea depending on the weather, tides, and time of day.


They can move in search of food to places where there are shoals of fish, as well as connect their homes to different “sea cities” and communicate with people of different cultures and values. People’s mobile lifestyles will make urban ecosystems more fluid. Floating mobile homes are housing for use at sea, equipped with a motor with a cleaning filter, tarpaulin and anchors in the living space. The variable roof can be tilted in a storm to avoid the wind and built so that it uses the wind as a source of energy on the roads.

The two-storey building is divided into a public space above the water and a private space under the water. The house uses solar panels and produces electricity that is used by the residents. The electricity produced is stored in a power tank containing water as thermal energy, from which electricity can be obtained if needed. In the case of homes that need more electricity, the power tank can be connected independently to the power supply.
