Architecture has always been the connection between human culture and the environment that surrounds it. For a very long time, architecture meant taking the environment and conforming it into a state that we deem beautiful. In doing so, we fail to recognize that nature itself can be its own beautiful shelter. The innovative result of this realization is the Makoko Floating School. It’s an organic- looking, recycled structure that harnesses the power of the tides, sun and native details within its environment. It’s no doubt the coolest building I’ve ever seen, and one of the driving forces to innovation in sustainability and design.
