Scope and Content Description of esquisse on the back: By imitating the disappearing icebergs, living space in the future is going to be like floating islands to dissolve the image of lands swallowed by rising sea level by climate change around the globe. Each floating architecture is a complex with complete functions of living, study, working and recreation, and the bottom part is the facility space for supporting the whole structure. Wide spreading vertical transportation facilities activities inside the building, providing convenience in daily life and letting communication happen between people. Natural lighting and air comes in the building through glass facades and windows, benefitting the growing of green vegetation which creates a comfortable environment for the residents who are also provided with splendid view of both above and under the sea in the floating city.
