Officials Just Signed a Contract to Build The World’s First Floating Village

 

Cities at sea, afloat on the waves, have long been a cherished dream for forward-thinking architects and science fiction writers. Now the world’s first fully floating community is set to take shape in the turquoise waters of a Tahitian lagoon.

Blue Frontiers, a Singapore-based start-up, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the French Polynesian government to build a $60-million floating village on the south side of the main island of Tahiti, with a prospective starting date of 2020.

This is really cool as there's so much room on the ocean to build cities on and with the reality of sea level change this can be a way for an island nation to survive.

Neat!  I hope people use this technology to test new ways of structuring governments and society. Bring on the crazy utopian/dystopian sea nations!

Better luck than Sealand they will probably have.
