Architectural Craziness: East River's Flood Harvesting Housing

New, 5 comments

"The concept of harvesting energy from river waves to power New York City just got more enticing," Inhabitat writes. Wrong! Even months after GRO Architects released a slightly insane vision for docking stations that harness energy while creating new green space for future Shake Shacks, our level of enticement is still at an all-time high. But GRO is back with a new version of the concept, and this time the open walkways have been replaced with more enclosed areas, which in many cases look like swirling turbines and in general comes off as 172% more terrifying. Or in Inhabitat's words, "This new look is similar to the pristine, yet engineered style of a brightly colored Dyson vacuum." So basically, the future's going to suck.
