The implementation of many of these projects became possible only in the last century — thanks to new ideas and materials.
Architecture becomes one of the most important areas in the modern world. Designing spaces where people live and work, has ceased to carry only functional in nature — now, architecture can be considered as a unique fusion of art and science.
People has become interested in the layout of the buildings, they has begun not only to understand the meaning of space, but try to use it.
Scientists best of all use the experience of architects. Implementation of many projects became possible only in the last century — thanks to new ideas and materials that began to use by architects. We decided to collect some of the craziest research projects from all over the world, each of which startled us.
The Project “Biosphere 2”
The Arizona Desert
Billionaire Edward Bass decided to show humanity how important the planet is. For this he hired scientists who developed the project “Biosphere 2”, simulating a closed ecological system. The main task was the idea about the working ability of the person in a completely closed environment. As Bass thought if the experiment was successful it could allow humanity to establish similar complexes on other planets.
Ahuge network of sealed buildings was built. Each maintained its own ecosystem. During two years a group of scientists had been living in the complex, but the difficulties they faced during the experiment didn’t allow to develop it. In 1994 the project ceased to exist.
