Now an architect has developed a floating park that is a haven for wildlife and will in turn address the rise in pollution. Koen Olthuis, of Dutch firm Waterstudio, has unveiled the Sea Tree, a multi-tiered structure comprising of layered green habitats. The water-based park will provide valuable living areas for birds, bees, bats and other small animals, bringing positive green effects to urban environments. It will also extend underwater, providing aquatic creatures with an environment to thrive.” w/ photos
