Japan last year survived the earthquake and tsunami, are still in a state of uncontrollable fear of the water element. Therefore, it is not surprising that the architects of this country was created a project “air villages” Tohoku Sky Village!
The essence of the Tohoku Sky Village project is the construction of villages and small towns not only in the fields, and the horizontal site, located at a certain elevation in relation to the surrounding land.
It turns out that every such town is an island, but not in the middle of expanses of water, and land in areas that are in the lowlands or in close proximity to the sea or ocean. Due to its location, they will be protected not only during disasters, but simply in the period of floods or heavy rains.
As planned by the architects of the company Sako Architects, “Air Village” Tohoku Sky Village should also have a certain amount of resources for some time to use it in those moments when the element doesn’t allow to establish a sustainable transport and freight to the “big world”. Electricity is at such times can be obtained from solar panels, wind turbines and small hydroelectric power plants installed in Tohoku Sky Village still under construction.
Moreover, in order to reduce the cost of the construction of settlements, to create a “cushion” on which they are located, you can use the debris remaining after the earthquake and the floods of 2011.
Certainly, idea Tohoku Sky Village seems rather strange and not so necessary. But it only for us! The Japanese who have learnt that such tsunami and flooding, quite understand that it is better to be reinsured once again, than again to endure that nightmare which they have faced one year ago.
