Normal "We are trying to use every piece of this aircraft, scattered like a "crash site."

Quote:

The eight buildings will be scattered across the terraced hillside as if it were a "crash site." As it happens, the site lies under a jet flight path into Los Angeles International Airport. That concerns the Federal Aviation Administration, which has asked Mr. Hertz to paint special numbers on the wing pieces to alert pilots that Ms. Rehwald's retreat is not a crashed jumbo jet.

"We are trying to use every piece of this aircraft, much like an Indian would use a buffalo," says Mr. Hertz.

Isn't this a little eccentric? There's nothing wrong with that, some of my favorite people are eccentric.

Nice idea, decent design, but poor choice of words to describe her concept.

Yes, I believe it is.


Interesting concept - would never be interested.

There are enough health problems on cruise ships - imagine the problems on this behemoth.

The New York harbor photo is of the "Freedom of the Seas" a 158,000 ton cruise ship that recently set sail.

The floating condo project "Freedom Ship" doesn't even have a set design yet.

OK i'm sad I know, but I love this kinda stuff.....it would be hard pressed to get people to live there, but I would, if I had the money to

I'm still waiting on my underground home/city, my underwater city and my flying city and of course my space colonies

I read too much fantasy/sci-fi when a kid
