background of research
Background of Research

General Aspect

- Increase of economic income level : people want to live and enjoy leisure activities near or on the water

- Climate change : there have been severe and frequent natural disasters like heavy rain, hurricane and flooding

Regional Aspect

  • - Location of Kunsan : Plenty of water like Sea, River and Lakes
  • - National Project : Saemangeum land reclamation project
  • - Others : Old Kunsan Islands Tourist Project


  • - Diverse floating architecture can be an emerging and realizable alternative.

Concept of Floating Architecture

Floating architecture can be defined as a building for living/working space that floats on water with floatation system, is moored in a permanent location, does not include a water craft designed or intended for navigation, and has a premises service(electricity, water/sewage, gas) system served through connection by permanent supply/return system
