The Floating Greenhouse

Composed of a wood and plastic dome and a base of recycled plastic drums, the Jellyfish Barge is a floating greenhouse that desalinates seawater to irrigate and grow plants. The water gets recycled over and over into a hydroponic system, which allows crops to grow in an inert bed of clay enriched by mineral nutrients. According to the Quartz article, this floating greenhouse, designed by Italian architecture company Studiomobile, can save 70% of water compared to traditional cultivation.
