Built on Water: Floating Architecture + Design
— Autumn 2014
The vision of living on water has recently become a professional focus among architects and urban planners. Climatic change, the rise of the sea level, and the constantly increasing global population are issues that render treating water surfaces as settlement areas as topical as never before.
Built on Water introduces innovative projects that include a wide range of building types based on very different approaches to handling water as the base for buildings – whether as floating or fixed constructions, as new buildings or for reusing existing structures. The different ways of dealing with water as an architectural element, turns this volume into a source of inspiration and comprehensive compendium of the visionary concepts for a future on and with water.
