Gorgeous Floating Water Lily Islands Soak Up Solar Rays
he exhibition, entitled “Water- Curse or Blessing”, presents innovative projects for architectural and infrastructural advancement in regions of Asia that are near large bodies of water.
Why Factory’s water lilies are giant floating islands that surround the lush city of Phuket.
Since 90% of residents of southeast Asia, as well as south and east of that live near water, the exhibition tackles the issues that are specific to these regions. Water may be everywhere, but these areas are still commonly afflicted by droughts, floods, and shortages of potable water.
Opening in blossom towards the sun, the lily islands would attract tourists to the area. Each would be accessible by boat, with stairways that lead to platforms providing incredible views – views also reflected in each petal of the blossom.
