    yesh, the “Modular Ark” design, seem to have been made by people that like making patios.

    I’m pretty sure there was a book about translucent concrete for spying on people,

    maybe it was Ayn Rand or some other Socialism satirist.

    but yes, still a relevant find, since they are floating stuctures.
