Green Float

Creating sustainable settlements on the ocean

PLP Labs and one of Japan’s most established construction companies, developed concepts and strategies for cities that float on the ocean, known as Green Float. The project explores the ways for humans to live symbiotically with the natural world, creating a positive environmental impact rather than a negative or even neutral one. The research evaluated how different elements of the city can contribute to positive feedback, exploring new technologies, construction methods, and relationships.

  • New possibilities for humans to co-exist with marine environments
  • Environmentally positive technologies and designs that can create new urban habitats and habits
  • The impact of living on the ocean to urban strategies, systems and technologies
  • Strategies for how cities can be constructed and arranged on the ocean in a resilient and sustainable way
