This is the winning design for an eco-friendly floating village that is planned for Brockholes Wetland and Woodland Nature Reserve in Preston, northern England. The concept, created by Adam Khan Architects, plans to use wood and other sustainable materials to build this floating village which will be built on underused or unused land.

Implications - More specifically, the plan is to build this over floating platoons. Visitors are promised guaranteed flood protection, allowing them to experience and be connected on a closer basis.

The concept is part of the Newlands Scheme which plans to transform "over 900 hectares of brownfield land into community woodland and green space," accoding to Adam Khan. The support of recreation and wildlife is also a priority for this zero-carbon focused project.
