What is the Amphibious U.S.A. Project?

It is a project of  restructuring the existing urban development  of the cities in the United States of America. By designing a new Urban Amphibious Architecture development connecting together the existing cities  and the new amphibious cities so they can coexist during flood season and  in turn will help to safe lives and prevent large losses as well as boost the economy of the U.S.A, which would be a positive response to climate change and future floods.



This project is based on 4 main elements which consist of the development of a:

1.- Master Plan of Sustainable Amphibious Urban Development

2.- Research Center for Development of Sustainable Amphibious Technology

3.-Interactive Water Museum

4.- Finance Center for the Development for the U.S.A. Amphibious Project
