“Open Sailing” is an open-source, globally coordinated community of about 50 people that aims to design a new platform to overcome any possible natural or man-made disaster, stimulating people’s ingenuity and sense of solidarity: an “open architecture”, a drifting village of solid and comfortable shelters surrounded
by flexible ocean-farming units.
The ultimate mission of “Open Sailing” is to take on challenges like overpopulation, climate change and energy conflicts with do-it-yourself technologies: “Instinctive_Architecture”, “Energy_Animal” and “Life_Cable” are some of the new approaches that are being developed and tested. The collective making of the International Ocean Station is our first community fostering objective.
