Showcasing houses that float

Friday, October 1, 2021

An architecture professor’s amphibious house research in Vietnam is featured as a Global Best Practice project at Expo 2020 Dubai opening today in the United Arab Emirates.

Elizabeth English’s award-winning work on the development of amphibious technologies for retrofitting existing homes will be prominently showcased for the month of October in the Opportunity Pavilion dedicated to addresing major global challenges.

“We need to be supporting the communities of people who have been living in the same place for generations and, in some cases, hundreds of years,” says English. “They deserve to be able to stay in the place they love if they are able to stay there safely.”
