Asteries are habitable and evolutionary. The modules are connected together by a flexible tubular street forming an arm able to detach from its Asteria and to move by undulating. Each module has a spherical space of 9 meters in diameter, able to accommodate small ecosystems, houses, vegetable gardens. Most of the time, the Asteries stay close to the surface of the water to renew the air and to offer enough light to the inhabitants, to the plantations.

Descriptive of Author : The arms of the Asteries are formed of articulated modules between them. The drifting structures connect, detach themselves according to the uses.
