    Damn Ocean, that is a good find! Very similar to the concept and design I’ve had up on the drawing board for awhile (mine isn’t nearly as aethetically pleasing). Its modular, its efficient, I like it :)

    That’s a lot like an idea I had a couple years ago. Essentially, you build a city on stilts (or just the stilts) right before (or at the same time as) you build a hydro-electric dam. The dam provides the city with power and you’ve got a preplanned venice in the middle of a river. It doesn’t apply very well to seasteading but I thought it was an interesting concept at the time. I’d probably rely on floatation more than sheer structure after spending so much time on these forums. It would make more sense. Now I want to dig out my old sketches, wherever they went.

    In any case, this is pretty interesting. It’s too bad the ocean isn’t a nearly glass-smooth surface like the water these homes have the good fortune of floating on. Of course, we’d already be living on the sea by now if it were that simple.

    “In any case, this is pretty interesting. It’s too bad the ocean isn’t a nearly glass-smooth surface like the water these homes have the good fortune of floating on. Of course, we’d already be living on the sea by now if it were that simple.” ,…..Oh well.

    What is also remarkable its the whole ideea that the goverment is planning ahead and experimenting w/noveau ideeas and technologies,…unlike other stuck up goverments. While is true that the Dutch had to do it (deal w/low lands) out of necessity, for centuries, some other goverments should follow suite. In US, for example in Key West (and actualy all South Florida) there are no preparations for a raising sea level. Only 2 feet higher from MLW (mean low water) would be devastating…But they dont care….
