Seasteading demands a nimble balance of practical present technology and untested innovation. Our latest engineering study, part of our Floating City Project, attempts to strike this balance by examining the feasibility of… Read More »New feasibility study: Semi-submersible, “mini-modular” plaftform

Engineering report released: “Parametric Analysis of Candidate Configurations for Early Seastead Platforms…”
For the past half-year or so, The Seasteading Institute has been toiling away on an engineering study that’s aimed at identifying the most promising configurations for early seastead communities. We’ve looked at three different hull configurations (ship, barge and semi-submersible) in a range of sizes to accommodate as few as 100 to as many as 5,000 seasteaders.
