Vincent Callebaut – Ocean

The inspirational keyword for me is “Ocean”. This word came to me as it is the place that I currently want to be at. While researching things that are related to Ocean, I came across Vincent Callebaut’s plan for oceanscrapers, a futuristic ocean building made from 3D-printed plastic waste. The photo on Google appeared to be extremely distinctive and cool and therefore I came across this futuristic plan.
