Ocean Sphere | 99% of the space volume available for human expansion is ocean | Seasteading | Ocean Colonization | human habitat | floating city |
Oceanic drift cages | Only the ocean can produce the food necessary for the human population growth we expect in the next 3 decades | aquaculture | ocean domestication |
Ocean Sphere seen from above the surface | storms and waves are no threat for the structure |
The Ocean Sphere is looking inside - the inner patio gets natural sunlight from the “oculus” on top of the sphere.
Ocean Sphere interior
Big concrete shell structures have a long record of being seawater resistent and last for hundert of years at marine conditions.
