The design arrangement of the plattform and the building leads to logical and fast connections between the single parts of the city.
The basis of the form are developed by a orthogonal grid structure, which enables an easy development by bicycle or even bigger vehicles. On the upper level you can found a diagonal structure, which is reserved for pedestrians and allows fast crosslinks.
Furthermore, this level serves as a recreation area and builds a upper finish of the buildings at the same time.
The two opposite wings of the building are forming together with the two staircases – which on one hand make the buildings accessible and on the other hand opens the access to the rooftop – a inner courtyard.
External the wings close with a copper front, which is percolate by room-highly windows. Internal, to the inner courtyard are planned concrete and glass as materials.
The whole building rests on a pedestal and takes himself clearly off the float. The lower development occur stepless on ground-floorlevel on footbridges. Beneath its rubble as sputter water can flow off.

The technology to foster the fluid mechanics of voluntary societies is at hand.
The Seasteading Institute is a nonprofit think-tank working to provide a machinery of freedom to choose new societies on the blue frontier.
The most successful floating cities can then inspire change around the world.
