Of note is the fact that these are not built to weather high seas and are in sheltered waters…
Never be afraid to try something new…
Remember, amateurs built the ark, professionals built the Titanic.
yesh, the “Modular Ark” design, seem to have been made by people that like making patios.
Though It’s kinda cute, kinda orwellian with the transparent walls and everything,
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.
