The concept is a two-part system that uses igloos both above the ground and under the water.
The upper structures provide penguins with man-made habitats for breeding, along with enough space for a waddle to keep eggs warm.
The lower igloo features crater-like holes that mimic a sea sponge and is connected to a submerged swinging pendulum.
As the pendulum is moved by waves, it produces electricity to cool the surrounding ice –halting the frozen sheets from melting.

The concept, called ‘Penguin Protection System,’ is the brainchild of Sajjad Navidi and although it is still a conceptual project, Navidi hopes it will address polar ice melting while creating habitats for penguins.
Melting ice is pushing emperor penguins into extinction because the birds rely on the frozen landscape to live and breed.
With this in mind, Navidi has set out to create a solution for both events.
