Book
This book highlights state-of-the-art research findings on floating developments in both inland and coastal waters with focus on living, recreation and working offshore. It includes six themes: (1) business case and real estate development, (2) spatial planning and architecture, (3) food and energy production, (4) ecological impact and nature-based...
Article
Full-text available
The study aims to present, compare, and assess three different types of buildings considered as flood-resilient construction: building on piles (also called static elevation), amphibious building (also called can-float), and floating building in terms of their performance in the context of a semiwild river in a large city. The comparative multiple-...
Article
Full-text available
Usually, the concept of sufficient stability of a floating structure is connected with the capacity to keep a small heel angle despite the moment of heeling. The variable responsible for these characteristics is the initial metacentric height, which is the relation between the hydrostatic features of the pontoon and the mass properties of the entir...
Conference Paper
The development of information technologies has resulted in a strong return of interest in the concept of automating the design process. Most of the attempts such as works of Hersey and Freedman, Duarte or the PRISM application are based on shape grammars. Another approach is evolutionary simulations in concept creation augmentation such as works o...
Article
The paper presents results from social research on the Polish business representatives potentially interested in using the floating buildings. The main purposes of the study were to assess the level of knowledge about floating buildings and diagnose stimulants and inhibitors of their development in the hotel, catering, and water tourism industry. C...
Article
Full-text available
Since the beginning of the 21st century floating buildings have been growing in popularity in Poland. According to market research and quantitative studies, the majority of operative Polish floating buildings serve for commercial purposes, such as short-term rentals, vacation houses and floating marinas. Simultaneously, despite the increasing deman...

W pracy zaprezentowano proces projektowania mieszkania trzypokojowego o modelowym układzie funkcjonalno-przestrzennym i minimalnej powierzchni. Zaprojektowane mieszkanie jest podstawowym typem lokalu tworzącym strukturę wielorodzinnego budynku społecznego. W założeniach przeznaczone jest dla trzech lub czterech osób, ale w scenariuszu awaryjnym moż...
Thesis
Rozprawa podejmuje temat projektowania architektonicznego budynków pływających na tle zagadnień związanych z kształtowaniem środowiska zbudowanego na styku lądu i wody. Budynek pływający zdefiniowano w pracy jako obiekt pływający posiadający wydzielone na stałe pomieszczenia, o budowie w całości dostosowanej do użytkowania stacjonarnego, nieposiada...

W rozdziale przetawiono efekty prac nad opracowaniem projektu dwupokojowego mieszkania społecznego, posiadającego modelowy układ funkcjonalno-przestrzenny oraz minimalną powierzchnię, przeznaczonego dla młodej rodziny z małym dzieckiem (do lat 3), poprzedzone przeglądem istotnych dla zagadnienia rozwiązań historycznych oraz analizą przykładów ze ws...
Conference Paper
The semi-wild character of the Vistula River in Warsaw is rare among rivers passing through the European capital cities: The Vistula has preserved natural features of a braided river like numerous islands, oxbow lakes and side channels. Despite the environmental value, this unusual situation of a semi-wild river in the city center has a serious dra...
Conference Paper
The design and construction of the aquatic structures - water-related built forms of architectural relevance is a wide field of action for many creative and engineering professions like architecture, hydraulic, offshore and naval, to name the main ones. Due to a substantial growth of the aquatic sector, these specialists more often start to work to...

Dynamic development in practically all fields of science and engineering has not passed over shipbuilding. In last years, engineers got to their use computer software which makes it possible to perform strength and hydrodynamic calculations as well as to visualize design projects in 3 D space [1-4]. At their disposal they have full spectrum of mode...
Conference Paper
Budynki pływające – tzw. „domy na wodzie”, czyli stacjonarne obiekty pływające eksploatowane jak budynki w celach mieszkalnych lub usługowych – posiadają szereg cech przyjaznych środowisku naturalnemu. Pływalność umożliwia instalację w pożądanym miejscu bez konieczności poważnej ingerencji w brzeg i dno, a także zapewnia odporność na wahania poziom...
Chapter
W artykule podejmiemy próbę weryfikacji poglądu o okrętowym rodowodzie modernistycznej architektury mieszkaniowej na podstawie studium przypadku Jednostki Marsylskiej. Przeanalizujemy różne aspekty projektu, a jej charakterystyczne właściwości porównamy z cechami XX-wiecznych transatlantyków. Następnie pokażemy drogę Le Corbusiera od okrętowych fas...
Chapter
Full-text available
The paper presents the potential and risks of utilizing Rhinoceros and Grasshopper software for parametric design and multi-varietal optimization of the hull of a small sustainable ferry. The sustainability criteria, parametric design flowchart and optimizing methods are described. As a result, the advantages and disadvantages of this approach obta...

Full-text available
The current research on the amphibious architecture lacks the proper, commonly shared vocabulary and typology of water placed structures. In the paper, the state of the typological works is described and the new typology based on three main distinguishing factors (relation to water, buoyancy and mobility) is given. Thanks to the different perspecti...

The article analyzes the relationship between the architecture and the structure of a vessel on the example of the reconstruction design of the wooden sailing yacht “General Zaruski” built in Ekanӓs, Sweden, in 1939. The case study was based on the documentation of “Kaparen” (sister yacht), “Młoda Gwardia” (ex "General Zaruski") and the reconstruct...

www.icaade.org ICAADE 2019 - Shifting the Boundaries will bring together practitioners, researchers, authorities, students, NGO’s, communities and investors in the exchange of knowledge and practice on amphibious issues. Architecture, design and engineering are the result of long-lasting social, economic and technological progress and pathways. We need multidisciplinary perspectives on shifting the boundaries of water and land by use of architecture, design and engineering. These perspectives can support the identification of open questions, market potentials, acceptance and engagement, and flood risk mitigation and climate change adaptation. ICAADE 2019 - Shifting the Boundaries aims to overcome the land-water-dichotomy by providing space and time for discussions on the various paths of practice, experience and knowledge. A pier for science to policy, to practice, and vice versa will offer opportunities to include business, health, finance, design, insurance, politics, research and engineering. In the procedural amphibious space, it is crucial to integrate natural, technological and human interactions for a more sustainable stewardship. With shifting perspectives, the conference reflects on shifting boundaries and water-levels.
