A Floating City For The New Aquatic Frontier

A Floating City For The New Aquatic Frontier

The students of the Architectural Association visiting school workshop were given the task of creating a new frontier. Faced, in Shanghai, with rising water tables and the threat of aquatic overflow, they used three dimensional math (when was the last time you used a Z-axis?) to determine how architecture would respond to water if it was built upon a fluid foundation. If any of your thoroughly understand this, get at us. We just know it's insanely cool. [ArchDaily]
