Floating architecture

  1. 1. FLOATING ARCHITECTURE PRESENTED BY - AMAN KUMAR
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Floating architecture is the architecture capable of floating in the water and maintaining a functional floor height above the water surface when exposed to high tide or flood.
  3. 3. WHY FLOATING ARCHITECTURE?  GLOBAL WEATHER CHANGES  Global warming  Arctic melting  Sea level rising  Flooding ARCHITECTURAL REACTIONS  Floating houses  Floating cities
  4. 4. CONCEPT & TECHNIQUES
  5. 5. REASONS :- WORLD’S POPULATION DENSITY INFLUENCE OF FLOATING ARCHITECTURE : - WHY???
  6. 6. AIM  The aim of this study is to review the concept of sustainability & floating architecture.  To investigate the sustainable characteristics through realized and planned floating architectures.  To suggest some reference materials for new building projects around waterside.
  7. 7. WHAT IS NEW IN FLOATING ARCHITECTURE ???  TYPES OF FOUNDATIONS  TYPES OF STRUCTURES  TYPES OF MATERIALS
  8. 8. BENEFITS OF FLOATING FOUNDATIONS: • Unsinkable • Rigidity • Durable • Environmentally safe • Bug / Rodent Proof • Insurable FEATURES OF FLOATING FOUNDATIONS:- • Monolithic structural concrete • Engineered & Custom designed • One piece construction • Customize - Stamped, stained, or polished finishes available • In-floor heat - Go barefoot all winter with the comfort of radiant heat • Resale Value - Retains superior value over other floatation systems • Maintenance Free - floats are maintenance free FOUNDATIONS USED IN FLOATING STRUCTURES
  9. 9. TYPES OF FLOATING STRUCTURES  FLOATING HOMES/VILLAS  FLOATING MARINAS  FLOATING WAVE ATTENUATORS  YACHT ENCLOSURES  FLOATING HOTEL TOWER  FLOATING MOSQUE  FLOATING APARTMENT COMPLEX
  10. 10. FLOATING HOMES/VILLAS
  11. 11. FEATURES OF FLOATING VILLAS:- • Monolithic structural concrete • Engineered & Custom designed • One piece construction • Customize - Stamped, stained, or polished finishes available • In-floor heat - Go barefoot all winter with the comfort of radiant heat • Resale Value - Retains superior value over other floatation systems • Maintenance Free - floats are maintenance free
  12. 12. FLOATING MARINAS
  13. 13. MARINA  A marina (from Spanish [maˈɾina], Portuguese [maˈɾinɐ] and Italian [maˈriːna]: marina, "coast" or "shore") is a dock or basin with moorings and supplies for yachts and small boats. A marina differs from a port in that a marina does not handle large passenger ships or cargo from freighters.  The word marina is also used for inland wharves on rivers and canals that are used exclusively by non- industrial pleasure craft such as canal narrowboats
  14. 14. MARINAS utilizes patented rubber connectors. Their benefits include: • Superior rough water capabilities: as they were originally developed for the aquaculture industry • Silent: even in the roughest conditions • Free movement: no contact between concrete, steel & rubber • Restrained forces: by connector’s steel bolt • Virtually no maintenance: no need to tighten whaler bolts • Simple: requires minimal assembly
  15. 15. FLOATING WAVE ATTENUATORS
  16. 16.  Habitent is a compact, easy to erect, adjustable cockpit enclosure designed to fit a wide range of sailing boats without the need of permanent fixings to enhance your yachting outdoor living enjoyment; giving shelter from the sun, wind and rain and providing a versatile low cost option to cumbersome traditional sailing boat cockpit canopies and boom tents.
  17. 17. BENEFITS: • Unsinkable • Low Maintenance • Fireproof • Durable • Insurable • Environmentally safe • Appreciates in value
  18. 18. SPECIALITY FLOATS
  19. 19. BENEFITS: • Unsinkable • Low Maintenance • Fireproof • Durable • Insurable • Environmentally safe • Appreciates in value
  20. 20. YACHT ENCLOSURES
  21. 21. OPTIONS: • Insulated roofing • Power bi-fold doors • Fabric skylights • 3’ and 6’ man doors • Bird wire • Gable venting • Power humidistat fans • Mezzanine
  22. 22. FLOATING HOTEL TOWER  Location: Great Barrier Reef area in Queensland, Australia  Year of completion: 1988  Size & scale: 5 story, 140 double rooms and 34 luxurysuites,  Volume:- 29,000㎥  The world's first offshore floating hotel, four seasons hotel had been installed adjacent to Australia's Great Barrier Reef(GBR) in March, 1988.  The hotel was a self- supporting floating building and so had a desalination plant for fresh water, on-board sewage and waste treatment. Four seasons hotel, Australia
  23. 23. - Location: Island of Klädesholmen , near Gothenburg, Sweden - Year of completion: 2008 - Size & scale: 2 story, 23 rooms(46 beds) - Date of visit: August 8th-9th, 2011 Floating hotel "Salt & Sill", Sweden In October 2008, Sweden’s first floating hotel, designed by Mats & Arne Arkitektkontor AB, Sweden, opened alongside the famous restaurant "Salt & Sill".
  24. 24. Floating mosque, Dubai Location: Palm Jebel Ali, Dubai, UAE - Year of design: 2007 - Size & scale: 1 story  The flat-roofed floating mosque, designed by Koen Olthuis of Waterstudio, the Netherlands, has minarets, traditional Islamic arches, and two rows of 12m high transparent plastic columns that do not only support the roof but also give daylight through the prayer hall.
