“We are building a floating architecture that evolves like a living organism, a laboratory for techno-social experiments.
“Open_Sailing” aims to design an attractive technological lifestyle to overcome any possible natural and man-made disaster, stimulating people’s ingenuity and sense of solidarity. Be it overpopulation, global warming or energy conflicts, we are living in a time where “Apocalypse” beckons. We need to collectively invent and spread bootstrapping DIY technologies for the forthcoming challenges, not only to survive but to re-invent how we inhabit this planet.
We are trying to create a truly “Open_Architecture”. This is a drifting village of solid and comfortable shelters surrounded by flexible ocean farming units : fluid, pre-broken, reconfigurable, sustainable, pluggable, organic and instinctive. The Open_Sailing_01 is about 50 m in diameter, for 4 persons.
In the process we are developing and testing numerous novel technologies, such as “Instinctive_Architecture”, “Energy_Animal”, and “Life_Cable” within an innovative nomadic ecosystem. The “Swarm_Search_Engine” is a distributed operating system that suggests a general safest location and a form for the overall structure that constantly reconfigures itself in order to provide intelligent distribution of supplies, energy and information. Open_Sailing aims to ask questions about the way we currently inhabit our planet. Can we reach a harmonious dynamic state of interdependence with each other and the earth? Is this the next step for civilization? Will we disassociate our concept of progress with rigid infrastructure and metropolis?”
