This futuristic floating city could one day be the perfect home for those who love sweeping views of the sea.
Designed by French architect Jacques Rougerie, the vessel is shaped like a manta ray and could serve as inspiration for cruise ships or floating residences of the distant future.
With its radical design, the giant City of Meriens would be nearly 2,950ft long and 1,650ft wide, with a capacity of 7,000 occupants.
Mr Rougerie, who is celebrated for his imaginative designs for land, sea and space, envisions the vessel as a university city.
It would be home to 7,000 researchers, professors and students for long-term stays, with living quarters, classrooms, laboratories and areas for leisure and sport, The Creators Project reported.
