About this project

floating platforms

General information

„Open-Island“ is a proven modular system for floating islands, made of upcycled and renewable materials. It was developed in Germany and India and released Open-Source in 2015. After several thematic variations in Goa, Ahmedabad, Varanasi and floats in Thailand and Germany, the Open-Island Bangalore will be built in the new hexagonal shape in stainless steel, bamboo and upcycled waste materials. It serves as a representative symbol for a collaborative transformation, functioning as a multifunctional floating platform for a variety of appropriate solutions and interdisciplinary innovations. With Open Island we´ll be raising awareness on the problem of waste in the city as for the value and potentials of healthy water-bodies.
