SO company? She currently resides in the largest and most populous city in Turkey, i.e. Istanbul, and her dream is to create something that will help its inhabitants in the event of a major earthquake. That is why he is working on Fold & Float, a kind of shelter floating on the surface of the water.
According to the local bosses, a large earthquake in Istanbul would have been enough to make the area unsuitable for emergency construction for many years. And since this city is practically one great port of the Black Sea, it is here that the inhabitants would find a respite. This is to be provided by the Fold & Float prototype under development, which is based on a steel skeleton based on a huge pontoon, ensuring adequate displacement. While this one takes up a lot of space, the external structure itself, which we can confidently call the “residential” one, is based on a design that guarantees the possibility of putting it together.
Therefore, the furniture is attached to the walls on hinges, allowing you to create a kind of kitchenette, bathroom, bedroom, and even something like a living room in a short time. All this on a total area of 21 square meters, and as great as it sounds, SO? there are still many details to be worked out. It is at stake, among others providing adequate heating, insulation, or at least a trace of electricity. However, this is only a prototype that does not have to be on the market. Ultimately, he can spend the rest of his (originally) great existence at the city’s Rahmi M. Koç museum, as the first model to be created.
