Water levels around the world are rising, so the Artificial Wetland Flood Prevention Center is designed to offer a solution for the Mississippi River. Designed by Margot Krasojevic, the center would act as a floating levee system that would help to divert water to prevent floods and help incite more sediment to settle.

The center is crafted from post-consumer materials to help increase the eco-friendly nature of the structure. When in place, the Artificial Wetland Flood Prevention Center would help to divert water, mitigate the chances of flooding and help to stabilize the area through various methods.

Rising water levels around the world are beginning to be noticed by a variety of different communities ranging from those in Asia, to here in North America. This conceptual building design is something we could one day see on our shorelines as a preventative measure against rising waters.
