Koen Olthuis, founder of Waterstudio.nl and floating architecture expert, recently gave a talk at TEDxWarwick on the benefits of floating cities. For years, we’ve been following Olthuis’ work – including his floating homes and Waterstudio.nl’s proposals for amazing water-based cities. Now his ideas for floating cities are getting a lot more attention as they offer ways to reduce the risks of flooding and climate change while opening up more space in dense urban environments. Olthuis’ TEDx talk in Warwick is a great overview of his philosophy and how floating architecture can help change the world.
