By Design, Alan Saunders

Following the Queensland floods, By Design discussed how we can better design our cities to hold back the waters.

It’s a question which captured our imagination and one that seems very pertinent as global warming sees water levels continue to rise in coastal residential areas.

Waterstudio.NL is a Netherlands architectural firm that specialises in floating structures to counter concerns about floods. The vision of its founder, Koen Olthuis, is to change cities worldwide by using water as a building ground.
