The project consists of a water collector on stilts, collecting rainwater through a series of water-repellent canvases, curved to guide the water from one to the other. lt is connected to a network of footbridge, an element that moves with the water, offering a stroll through the old dwellings, now flooded and destroyed by the elements, thus creating islands of nature that punctuate the shores of the lake and participate to a new natural ecosystem. They connect floating dwellings inspired by models of traditional Beninese huts.

Descriptive of Author : Based on water issues in Benin, this floating house project offers a new urbanity on the shores of Lake Nokoué.
