    created in the twenty eighties as a   
   cheap and open source way of dealing   
  with constant floods and a rising sea   
                  level.                  
                                          
  the "house" would consist of a stack of 
  floor modules, each a square of thirty  
  six square meters. these could be made  
  out of various materials such as carbon 
  fiber or plastic, not necessarily the   
           same for each floor.           
                                          
  the house would be hung on a "mast", a  
    ridged metal pole extending between   
 fifty and a hundred meters. a mechanism  
  within each floor would enable them to  
  climb up or down the mast, together or  
              individually.               
                                          
   the lowest floor would usually have a  
 loading dock, a balcony/front door, and  
             various ladders.
