2100+ is a floating ocean-ship utopia and a realistic vision of how communities could soon be taking shape in a world submerged by water. Humans have a long history of living on the water, however, the recent threat of climate change and the rise of new technology might give life to the idea of sustainable ocean-based communities. 

2100+ is a complex machine made up of a collection of connected devices. Each of them serves a fundamental purpose for the survival of the community and harness natural resources from the environment around. At the center of 2100+ stands the Atmospheric Water Generator: moisture is extracted from the air and, alongside with rainwater, transferred to the Terrestrial Biosphere, where flora and fauna specimens are safeguarded. 

2100+ floats in the open ocean, which provide an abundant, untapped source of both water and solar energy. Ocean water is used as “field”: fish and algae farms provide sustainable food harvesting.  Three helium inflated solar stills use the natural energy of the sun to purify water collected from the ocean, while allowing 2100+ to float and continue its journey. In addition, solar energy is used to power a central engine and propeller, which would function as back up in case the floating system should fail.
