Description

Amphibious Buildings refers to buildings that rest on the ground in normal conditions and rise with floodwater. This is an emerging area of building in a time that many cities are dealing with an increasing amount of floodwater, and often also with a lack of space for urban development. In this unique work, the principles of amphibious construction are explained through the concepts of design. It includes an extensive coverage of building construction practice and techniques, representing both vernacular and contempary developments. This book is a useful reference for architects, building owners, building managers and operators, contractors, and others in the building industry who want to learn more about the building design and construction of amphibious buildings. Its universal approach will inspire readers from various places around the globe to adapt the concept to their local conditions.
