Currently a contradictory global situation takes place. The climate and social changes are progressing. The sea level is rising by the smelting of ice and the extension of ocean owing to the temperature rise. This means: the building ground reduces above all things in costal and river districts. On the other hand the mankind and its claims with regard to living room is growing and more building sites are necessary. A smart solution for the conflict situation is the floating architecture. This means floating settlements and cities. In the consideration should be taken also so-called amphibious and floatable houses as a solution in case of floods in river destrics. Technical and social questions must be investigated. Some examples for the problems are demonstrated in the paper.
