Floating Architecture
Lausitz

 

A floating mobile architecture was developed to enliven the Lausitz lake landscape, which was created in an old lignite quarrying area. The houseboat’s maximum dimensions are based on the canal widths between the different lakes and the clearance of the bridges, it can accommodate 6 people. An integrated energy concept must be developed that provides completely self-sufficient supply – heating, fresh water, power. Wind, solar and water are used as sources for these supplies, and a ram jet engine allows for safe movement.
