CANCELLED – Feb. Social: Very Large Floating Structures

Unfortunately, we have to cancel this event, but we will reschedule as soon as we can!

Join us for an online presentation on floating structures from FlexBase International founder Shiwen Yap.

Once a month, we will host a free, online discussion on a topic related to seasteading. This month, the topic is Very Large Floating Structures with Shiwen Yap.

Shiwen partnered with Netherlands-based FlexBase BV, founded by Jan Willem Roël, to launch FlexBase International. Since then, he’s advanced the venture. They approach floating structures from a unique angle. Focused on floating structures with foundations built using a proprietary EPS-concrete hybrid, the idea is to develop very large floating structures (VLFS) as a form of marine urbanisation. It’s about VLFS as an extension of the cityscape and an adaptation to rising sea levels. Patri Friedman, the founder of the Seasteading Institute and board chairman, is leading a funding syndicate on AngelList and is an investor in FlexBase International.
