In Abu Dhabi, architects are reclaiming land from the ocean and building on the existing islands there. In Bulgaria, while pumping out the water, they discovered a town that was built centuries ago.

The ancient city of Seuthopolis was discovered in 1948, but only six years later was submerged after a dam was destroyed. Now the town is being reclaimed as a part of a massive government project.

Implications - Projects like this one help draw attention to causes that have gone relatively unnoticed within the press. A company's ability to advocate for worthwhile causes helps give off an aura of social responsibility while also drawing attention to the company itself.
