Flood Proof Homes

As the floods continue it’s time to learn.
A key strategy in high risk areas is to build resilient homes.  Holland has decades of creating flood proof homes, let's learn from their success.
Our floating homes and sustainable pavilions use permeable surface infrastructures and do not require the hard surface tarmac and concrete of modern housing developments, which have proved to be a major cause of the Thames Valley floods.
The rain absorbing green roofs we use have also been shown by the Dutch to slow the amount of water reaching drainage systems and rivers.

Even if you ignore the supposed therapeutic benefits of living by water, the argument for floating habitats convinces more as sea levels rise. In 50 years, the Pacific Ocean may have swallowed the Polynesian Islands of Tuvalu. The Maldives, which are just 1.5m above sea level at their highest point, could easily go the way of Atlantis, too. The River Thames flooded its banks in 1947. What if it were to happen again? The science behind floating homes is neither callow nor tentative, effective, durable models have been built for a long time.
