There are two major effects of global warming; rising temperatures and melting glaciers. More than five million cubic miles of ice fields are continuously melting. Experts estimate if all melting drains to the sea, the sea-level would rise 216 feet. It will cause a different life style for the future. The effects of sea-level rise are scarcity of resources and a lack of habitat. We propose a new infrastructure, through the use of existing buildings, with different function to help humanity cope with rising sea-levels.
