Maldives Floating City

Maldives Floating City is a floating city that will house 20,000 people in a lagoon near the country’s capital.

Maldives Floating City by architecture studio Waterstudio is the first development of a new era in which Maldivians return to the water with resilient eco-friendly floating projects.



The city has a nature-based structure of roads and water canals resembling the beautiful and efficient way in which real brain coral is organised.

The idea of having brain coral as the leading concept is that the goal of living with nature and learning to improve and respect natural coral is at the heart of the development, which leads to new knowledge emphasising the responsibility Maldives takes as centre for coral protection in the world.
