This FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer) constructed housing system is a step in the direction of Floating Architecture to address the housing crisis. Creating a modular system out of this light and affordable material allows designers to ditch conventional building materials for a more affordable breed. The system itself is quite simple and focuses on a plug and play construction method out of panelized units. Customization allows for variation in the units, creating a compelling facade seen from 360 degrees. Developing land on the water is the future to design and will challenge architects everywhere to create spectacular projects.
