Okay, following up on this tweet https://twitter.com/coralorca/status/1560604997926039554?s=20&t=rYTnnBBAyFjY5KHXZuvsiA
→ Now picture NounsDAO as a Network State (see Balaji) with a few houses around the world…
What does it look like? How to get there?
Maybe starts with a small house, virtual first with collaborative 3D/4D models on the cloud, and then create physical mockups down the line towards a full case study. Rinse and repeat, the Elon Musk way.
Lets go through this with these intentions in mind:
- open source
- renewable / low carbon footprint
- modular / flexible
- community driven
- built examples / proven technologies
Few questions to get us going:
A/ What for? Timeshares, Nouns owners/builders retreat, passive income, Nouns B&B ? etc Go crazy
B/ How do we pick up locations? Proximity to transport, national crypto regulations, climate etc It would be cool to run this experiment within different locations/climate/regulations. Maybe cheap land owned by the foundation is a good start to avoid conflict of interest.
C/ What are open source construction methods for modular homes? Can 20 of us build this using low tech, low energy methodologies that are available anywhere? Can we have a generic blueprint that is adapted depending on the context (economic, material, climate, location etc).
WikiHouse https://www.wikihouse.cc/ is an interesting project that we could fork from imo.
Lastly, since I am sure this will come up with nounish land owners:
D/ How does the land development differ from a traditional process? Who owns the land? Can the property title be legally tied to NFTs via a smart contract? Can it be fractionalized? There were a lot of startups working in this complicated area (Crypto+Land ownership) circa 2017-18, and I haven’t seen a lot of success so far. Do you have any interesting examples or know people who are to do something in that area?
If you have land that could be developed, maybe refrain from posting it here as this might lead to a conversation about the DAO as a land developer and that might not be the most fundamental discussion for now unless we figure out ways to have it being community owned and operated (see D).
Just wanted to start a discussion and see where it can goes.
*Any architects in here? Before Nouns I was an architect specialized in Building Information Modeling (basically building high fidelity 3D/4D complex models/databases to plan execution, costs, risks, operations). If you know about this and are familiar with Catia, Revit, Rhino and large scale digital fabrication etc, lets connect.
