Designed to survive a hundred years at sea, This Side Up stabilization techniques uses modern oil rigs and the amarage capabilities of modern ships. Combined with a structure that can be filled with seawater to change the configuration of the vessel: from a horizontal to a vertical position, each one offering its own characteristics. This project aims to deepen our knowledge of the oceans and constructions at sea. This technology allows the ship to drift with ocean currents in the manner of airships moving thanks to the strength of hot air currents. The university can accommodate up to 140 students, functioning as a Forum.
