Blogpost spotlight: Makoko Floating School

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.

It’s no doubt the coolest building I’ve ever seen, and one of the driving forces to innovation in sustainability and design.
