Floating Dike
Floating Dike

The warming climate raises the sea level.
It is estimated that more than 12 islands will be drowned by 2020.
But with FLOATING DIKE, the timing of islands been drowned was prolonged and the ecology and culture of islands are preserved.
The following is the instruction of FLOATING DIKE:
When the water level rises,
Floating Dike drifts up with the water.
And when the water level goes down, Floating Dike falls with it.
