Maldives: a floating city to combat rising waters
In detail, the area where the Maldives archipelago rises – made up of 1,190 low islands – is among the most exposed and vulnerable to climate change. Consequently, the construction of a large floating city is conceived as a “must-have” and practical solution to combat rising ocean water levels.

“This project can demonstrate that there are affordable housing, large communities and normal cities on the water that are also safe. They (the Maldivians) will move from climate refugees to climate innovators,” Koen Olthuis, founder of Waterstudio, told CNN. .

Inside the floating island will be built houses, schools and shops that will be fixed by stabilizers that support it against the waves while keeping the buildings and structures safe against the current.
