Design challenge: The bio-mechanical futuristic water competition, is the International call for serious ecological ideas for the design of the biological mechanical village or urban quarter of the city - For the city of London, The competition seeks to apply a biological mechanical approach to the future environments of the city, applying the values of bioreef diversity . [ the bio mimicry of our great origin and ancestors the coral reefs as the image and problem solver of our future city], the city is limited in growth and marooned through the implementation of the green belt. The areas for expansion are either through the current high density processes, which begin to populate flood plains, or to move eastwards denseifying east London breaking through the green belt towards the Thames estuary, where a new second generation London could rise from the waves. The idea is not new, the Thames estuary has been the topic of intense debate through the possibility of building a floating island airport off the coast of Kent, and a nature reserve with a flood gate connecting Essex and Kent in its core via a high speed monorail, These radical approaches cannot be discarded without intense exploration, Could the next east London generation be a floating one?
