 Abstract
According to the climate change and the improvement of income level, floating building on water has been emerging as a strong alternative. This study was intended to suggest some reference materials of sustainability for new floating building projects. The concept of sustainability and floating building was investigated, and 3 realized projects and 3 planned projects were reviewed in terms of sustainability. Sustainable features of the sample projects can be summarized as recycled and relocatable usage, adoption of various renewable energy techniques, installation of self-supporting plant, application of modular system and others like new material & open layout. Sustainable features need to be developed more and more in detail and applied to many types of floating buildings.
