Gallery: INTERVIEW: We Talk to Blueseed About Their Floating “Googleple...

We were so intrigued by Blueseed's goal of creating a visa-free floating city off the California coast that we had to get the scoop from the company's CEO Max Marty and CIO Dan Dascalescu on their sustainability plans for this ambitious project. Designed to provide accommodation and office space for up to 1,000 highly talented entrepreneurs who are not permitted to live and work on American soil, this offshore Silicon Valley backed by Paypal founder Peter Thiel has great potential to serve as a showcase for cutting-edge energy generation and waste treatment systems.

    Military concepts like Afloat Forward Sustaining Base (AFSB) obviously have a completely different mission than a tech incubating ship, but sustaining people and systems at sea is a common requirement. How can it be accomplished most “sustainably”?

    I like the idea. I like the concept. I particularly like it because I have spent quite a few years conceiving, designing and building floating structures similar to what you are looking at. I would recommend building from scratch.
    If you’d like a sounding board with real practical experience (coupled with a passionate belief in the Vision), feel free to contact me. Easiest would be to contact me through LinkedIn: Jonathan T Baker, Architect.
    Good luck
