The project is called Aqualta, the main task — to predict ways of adaptation of the population to changing conditions. According to authors of the concept, harbour and system of pendant channels will replace existing transport system.

The name has given to the project concept Acqua Alta, the name of high inflow which threaten with flooding of Venice. On illustrations the future of two megacities, Tokyo and New York is shown, which adapt (instead of resist or try to resist) to changes in the nature.
