The float house is designed and built by Morphosis and UCLA Architecture and Urban Design graduate students. It’s the first floating house permitted in the United States for Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation in New Orleans.

The FLOAT House is a new model for flood-safe, affordable and sustainable housing that is designed to float securely with rising water levels.
