City in the Sea: The Venus Project

The future is sea bound!

Venus Project
The Venus Project, founded nearly 50 years ago by 93-year-old social engineer, futurist, architect, and idealist Jacque Fresco, is still one of the coolest (and dare I say, best) ideas for the future of human life.

This is what it's about:

The Venus Project presents a vision not of what the future will be, but what it can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization.

It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old problems of war, poverty, hunger, debt, and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but as totally unacceptable.

Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems found in today’s world.”






That's some good theorizing. But how long do you think it would take for it to become a reality?

  1. Looks nice, maybe someone can modify it and made it stronger, this can protect people if the water level increase to that high if the climatic change let it.
