The design firm Baca Architects specializes in eco-friendly architectural and housing solutions, and its floating communities are conceptualized as spaces that help reduce the impact of overcrowding in urban environments.

One particular floating community was designed for a "reinvigorated water space in London's Royal Docks," which features homes, shops and community spaces that are all floating on water along the firm's conceptualized docks. The firm has already begun designing and installing floating homes, and so its conceptualized communities are increasingly becoming a possibility as cities look to ease overcrowding – along with the architectural, eco and transit-related consequences it can have.

Baca Architects' floating communities examples function as creative and relatively practical solutions to some of the global population-related issues the world is facing today.
