3 – Bright Ideas in Travel 2023 – Condé Nast Traveler

Condé Nast Traveler’s “Bright Ideas in Travel 2023” introduces Ocean Builders’ SeaPod as an innovative, eco-restorative overwater bungalow. With a minimal and moveable seabed footprint, the SeaPod has the unique ability to regenerate coral growth on its structure, addressing the crucial need for sustainable coastal living amid rising ocean levels and increasing populations in low-lying areas.

The SeaPod utilizes solar power not just for electricity but also to stimulate coral growth. Electrical currents through floating steel tubes attract calcium carbonate, fostering coral regeneration. Collaborating with reef restoration organizations, Ocean Builders explores 3D-coral printing for artificial reefs on and around the SeaPod.

The article emphasizes the SeaPod’s significance in addressing environmental challenges and mentions Ocean Builders’ plans to transport the original SeaPod offshore, creating an off-the-grid seasteading experience powered by solar energy, wastewater recycling, and rainwater collection. The company is also in discussions about potential fully floating resorts in Dubai and other locations across the Middle East and Europe. The SeaPod’s eco-restorative design and sustainable features position it as a beacon for the future of coastal living.
