Land on Water

Building on water has gained popularity as a result of growing awareness of sea level rise and an increased risk of urban floods, but current options, such as concrete foundations filled with polystyrene and plastic pontoons, are rigid, challenging to move, and incredibly unsustainable.

A new system of straightforward, flat-packed modules made of recycled reinforced plastic has been envisioned by Danish maritime architecture studio MAST. These modules may be readily carried around the world and put together in numerous ways to provide a solid floating base. With the technique, you can construct almost anything on the water, from floating homes in Seattle to floating campgrounds in the Oslo fjord to saunas on the riverfront in Hobart.

The innovative system is also made to encourage biodiversity. The floatĀ“s crevices should promote the growth of mollusks and seaweed while acting as a habitat for fish and crustaceans.

RESPIRA NATURAL AIR PURIFIER

At first glance this might look like a vertical planter, but Respira is much more than just that. The sleek device filters out dust and particles and then pulls air through its wall of 13 natural plants. Beneficial organisms living within the root zone capture and permanently destroy airborne toxins and chemicals that we would otherwise be breathing.
