"Floating Cities are one part of Jacque Fresco’s The Venus Project [VenusProject], which aims to redesign world civilization to be more in line with human and environmental concerns. This includes switching to a resource-based world economy. While we are a bit suspicious of their economic theories, Mr. Fresco has quite an impressive resume. He’s also designed and built a research center for the project, which puts it well ahead of the plethora of similar-sounding visions. Unfortunately, they said we could not use any pictures from their site in this entry because our description was too negative, which is a bad sign."
They completed their Future By Design Movie, which won a bunch of awards, but I guess the project isn’t going well if they have to sell their Research Center. A bit far from the ocean for our needs (and from California), but seems like a neat property with all those concrete domes and workshops.
