a floating city in haiti?

architects are proposing a floating city in haiti. Take a look this picture and tell me what you think

The idea of the floating Haitian city is from architect E. Kevin Schopfer and Tangram 3DS, who envision the new Haiti to have a floating city on which people could produce food and promote industry.

Called Harvest City, this floating Haitian city would be in the bay of Port-au-Prince, comprised of a collection of islands that would be a fully functioning community of 30,000 residents based on the principle of Arcology (a mix of architecture and ecology), and could be a key player in Haiti's recovery.

Thank you, Serge Olivier, for sendit me this information...

Harvest city apppears to be a demonic idea for the future of haiti.

I supposed the mason seal should remain where they are in Washington D.C (USA)not in Haiti.

Haiti is, and will always be the first black republic of the world, regardless of superpowers politacal blockages.
