The A.S.A.P.-island project
Idea/Concept: > Let´s build an island together.
Sounds good to you?
German artist Joy and the association Positive Nett-Works e.V. decided to challenge the impossible, they want to realize an artificial island. And they invite you to join.

> Out of many possible constructions we will select the best one for each purpose.
- flexirafts and islands will form the bigger units such as agricultural islands or the common grounds of the growing asap-community
- sailing and motor-rafts are best for mobile-living and transportation, they also serve for cargo and new-positioning of the main island
- of the diving and flying rafts, only rough drafs exist yet...

> We´ll need lots of innovative tools, technologies and concepts to achieve our goals.
But most of them are already invented and available.
Have a look at our collection of tools and technologies here.

Timeline: > 2012 ...
With the "future-raft", 2000 and "future-islands", 2009 as prototypes and with a little help from our friends, the growing network and future-fleet, we´ll be ready to construct the "real thing" in 2012. Somewhere, where we are welcome, where we can help (decrease garbage through recycling designs; rescue platforms in flooded areas; touristic attraction; employment; ...) and where the conditions are suitable for the beginning of asap-island.
We´re curious, where this will be :-)
