    Hello, I am an Architect who has worked on many projects all over the world for more than half my life.

    I have been reading the research and just started into the forums.

    I am very interested in design and feel I have experience and practical knowledge of large projects that can apply to sea-steading.

    One of the basic concepts that I have not yet found on this site is the answer to why I am safe from waves in Kansas!

    I do not see sea-steads designed with buffer areas that can act as breakwaters. Many of the designs are just ships or barges with complicated structures to keep them from failing.

    I would purpose a very simple concept of a scalable modular floating concrete “barge type” units. Combined and connected to develop a sea city of living units and buffer units. This is very similar to city design today with buffer zones in flood plains where only certain non-critical development is allowed.

    Is there more research I have not discovered yet that discusses modular cities?
