Floating Architecture: A Design on Hydrophilic Floating House for Fluctuating Water Level


Even it is difficult to live against the water, it is possible to live with the rising water level. Global warming increases the mean sea level all over the world. The rising water level occupies the land surface. Netherland is the place where most of the land surface is not available for the construction of houses, the land surface were all taken away by the rising water. It is the only way for them to live with the rising water, and they started constructing houses on the water itself. A floating house of dimension 6.15m x 4.33m x 3m is designed for a water depth of 6m. Staad.pro v8i software is used for the analysis of structural members in the floating compartment. Manual design for the entire floating house is done. Stability analysis of the structure is also carried out for the safety of the structure.
