Description: The Float’n’rise Design Studio encourages a paradigm shift in design by speculating how a partially submerged building  can be designed along the Southern Louisiana coast. As the erosion and submersion of terra firma continues, what might the future of a community’s existence look like? Located at the intersection of architecture, ecology, and advanced technology, this studio is a step forward in navigating the fraught/complex relationship between terra-firma/aqua firma in the coastal areas of Southern Louisiana.
