    Floating village
    Siem Reap is a floating village, complete with social facilities: a floating hospital, a police station, floating shops, a tourist restaurant and even a floating church. The floating structures are connected to each other, or to long poles stuck in the mud. The core economic base is formed by the fishermen who need to live close to the sea for their fishing and close to the land to sell their fish. The reason for their habitat is that the shoreline of Siem Reap has excessive fluctuating water levels. Fixed houses would be regularly inundated, but the floating village moves in its entirety with the floods.

    The self sufficient boathouse is developed by The Key, Amsterdam. All of the needed energy is obtained on the boat, also water is treated and purified. The boat is the first self sufficient house, not connected to any utility facilities on the main land. On board installations are realized to produce energy and generate heat and filter the water.

    Constructed wetlands purify the water that flows through them. Compared to conventional treatment methods, they tend to be simple, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly. Constructed wetlands may be used to treat water from many different sources: Sewage; Stormwater; wastewater. The water needed for consumption usage needs to be heated up to 87°C and is stored in tanks.

    Water is not like land. If you plan to build on water, you need to do so with respect for the unique nature of water. Water is pioneering, water is adventure, danger, and relaxation, water lets you elude the rules of dry land. Living on water also means views, movement, boat docked at home, romance, jetties, a sense of individuality, wind and clouds, space, contact with the elements, feeding swans from your kitchen, ice skating around your house.

    Utility Unit.
    The Floating Utility Unit is not to be regarded as a definitive product. It is rather a toolbox that can be utilized at different locations with specific demands. The consideration of sustainable technology and feasibility is used as a basic principle. A business enterprise or foundation exploits the Utility Units, so that from a user perspective there is hardly any difference with regular public utilities.

    "The inhabitants are fishermen who need to be close to the water for their livelyhood. And to sell the fish they need to be close to the land. Because of the fluctuating water levels, the coastline migrates back and forth.The houses should move along with it and a floating substructure."
    Teatro del mondo
    {Teatro_del_mondo_transported.jpg} Teatro del mondo, Aldo Rossi
    Self sufficient boathouseIn 1979 Aldo Rossi planned this floating structure as a versatile stage for performing arts. As he explained, “The project for the Teatro del Mondo is marked by three aspects: having a precise usable if not defined space, its positioning as a volume in accordance with Venetian movement, being on the water. Clearly, being on the water is its main characteristic; it is a raft, a boat: the limit or border of construction in Venice”.

    Self sufficient boathouse
    The self sufficient boathouse is developed by The Key, Amsterdam. All of the needed energy is obtained on the boat, also water is treated and purified. The boat is the first self sufficient house, not connected to any utility facilities on the main land. On board installations are realized to produce energy and generate heat and filter the water.
    Purification of (waste)water
    A constructed wetland is connected to the boat and purifies the waste- and rainwater. Constructed wetlands are marshes built to treat contaminated water. They have four key components:
    * Soil and drainage materials (such as pipes and gravel)
    * Water
    * Plants (both above and below the water)
    * Micro-organisms
    Constructed wetlands purify the water that flows through them. Compared to conventional treatment methods, they tend to be simple, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly. Constructed wetlands may be used to treat water from many different sources: Sewage; Stormwater; wastewater. The water needed for consumption usage needs to be heated up to 87°C and is stored in tanks.
    Powerplant
    The geWoonboot generates own electricity by a combination of solarpanels and a very economical dieselgenerator. The heat of the generator is used for the cv and tap water. When there is a surplus (in summer and spring) the energy is used for heat supply towards white goods.
    Heat generation
    The heat that is needed on board is provided by three sources: sunenergy, heat of the dieselgenerator and heatpump.
    Optimal ventilation and insulation
    The facade insulation has got a minimum Rc value of 4,0 m2K/W. Through the air exchanger, the heat of effluent ventilation air is added to the fresh incoming air. In this way the ventilation hardly uses any energy. In summertime the air exchanger works in the opposite way.

    Waterdwellings
    {Marlies_Rohmer.jpg} Waterdwellings, Marlies Rohmer
    Is it a boat or a house? Is it romantic or utilitarian? It’s a hybrid. It’s not what it appears to be.
    Building on water is another story altogether….
    Water is not like land. If you plan to build on water, you need to do so with respect for the unique nature of water. Water is pioneering, water is adventure, danger, and relaxation, water lets you elude the rules of dry land. Living on water also means views, movement, boat docked at home, romance, jetties, a sense of individuality, wind and clouds, space, contact with the elements, feeding swans from your kitchen, ice skating around your house.
    The floating homes are constructed with the basement as a concrete structure, which are positioned half sunken in the water. On top of that a light wooden structure which is covered with glass and plastic facade elements. The concrete basements are moored with scaffold construction to the deck. With a construction package of porches, floating terraces, the house can be extended.

    Floating Pavilion
    ...
    Climate Initiative As the water level rises, the floating pavilion will automatically rise accordingly. This makes the pavilion an example of climate change resilient building, a technology for which demand is growing strongly in Rotterdam. The innovative pavilion responds to the collective objectives of Rotterdam to reduce emissions of the greenhouse gas CO2 by 50% and to ensure that the city remains climate change resilient also in the future.
    With its unique shape, the building will be highly distinctive and a prominent feature in the city. The pavilion will be built using sustainable materials that include a special foil that will be used to clad the domes. Dubbed ETFE, the foil will be about 100 times lighter than glass, which makes it eminently suitable for floating structures.
    The pavilion’s heating and air conditioning systems will rely on the use of solar energy and surface water. IT also contains various climatic zones where energy is only used in places where it is required at any specific moment. With the use of renewable energy, the pavilion will largely be self-sufficient.

    Floating farms

    Floating Water Agriculture
    There is plenty of space and development opportunities for floating on the water. Floating build competition with land use and climate is fully adaptive. Aquaculture and hydroponics are not dependent on their soil and can thus (floating) on the water are grown. The pilot module consists of 6 basins each 1.000m2, a workshop and an eco tourism site. The hexagon structure is a very effective geometry to large ponds with minimal equipment, in addition, in this way the workshop with 6 tanks are connected.

    Anthenea
    {Anthenea.jpg} Anthenea, Jean-Michel Ducancelle
    In The Spy Who Loved Me, James Bond and his sidekick use a luxuriously high tech life capsule to escape a watery grave. This cinematic vision inspired the French navel Architect to desgin a fully fitted, spherical floating island capable of deployment on the high seas. The result is a fantastic saucer- shaped habitat by the name of Anthenea that is brilliantly innovative in it’s multifunctionality. There is now an ‘Anthenea Family with models available in three sizes.

    The sunroom also provides an extra usable inside space with the openness, light and green qualities of an outside space. Sunrooms can be used on different scales ranging from individual houses. (Kaswoningen in Eva Lanxmeer). To even further combine the greenhouse and living environments it is possible to control the climate within the greenhouses so it becomes a living environment in itself. This living environment is filled with green which has a positive effect on the human well being. (Villa Flora).
