5) Graceful failure modes

6) Long lifespan


Other goals for structure

1) Room for solar or wind systems for energy independence

2) Space for farming

3) Minimize structure motion due to waves

4) Movable, not just floating

5) Minimum sized structure small enough for one family

6) Modular so can grow a community
