Self-Sufficient Sub-Biosphere 2: étude de texte

Characteristics:

  • An underwater city (line 2)
  • Self-sustaining = can produce everything it needs for people to live on/in it. (l.4)
  • Can house 100 inhabitants (line 5)
  • 40 stories above water + 20 submerged. (l.13-14)

3 advantages :

  • Solve the problem of overpopulation (“can ease housing shortages for a growing global population” line 6)
  • Sustainability = eco-friendly
  • Seed bank” line 12 = can produce food underwater

So this undercity was designed by Phil Pauley, it is composed of 1 main dome (Biome) surrounded by 8 spherical smaller domes. It was built in order to find a solution to housing shortage = the lack of housing due to a growing population.

This place will offer the possibility to build housing underwater. The main dome enables to create electricity, to produce fresh air. The other 8 domes allow people to live, to have apartments maybe.

VOCABULAIRE A MEMORISER:

sustainability = viabilité, durabilité / sustainable development = développement durable
self-sustaining = qui est auto-suffisant, peut vivre de ses propres ressources
eco-friendly = bon pour l'environnement, écolo
seed = graines
to house = héherger
inhabitants = habitants
a (house) story = un étage
shortage = manque, pénurie
lack of = un manque de
due to = dû à
