Bloom is a futuristic concept about marine farming designed by French firm Sitbon Architectes. The spherical structure is designed to be a semi-submersible laboratory garden, cultivating microscopic marine organisms known as phytoplankton that produce oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The floating structure is attached to the seabed by a system of cables and uses an advanced filtration system to make salt-water into fresh-water for the onboard residents. Moreover, bloom is sensitive to even the smallest sea level variations in the surrounding waters to help alert nearby nations of impending tsunamis.
