Abstract: The aim of this research is to discuss the key elements of successful implementation of floating buildings with purpose to activate waterfronts for the public use. The challenge of utilisation of waterfronts and bodies of water that meet city shores seems to have a global presence. Policy makers, planners and practitioners seek to reintroduce the waterfronts as places of public benefit and enjoyment and seem to be sharing the similar guiding principle on which functions these places are able to accommodate. By following this principle, city shores and their water are becoming a functional mix of public spaces where one can come to work, play or simply relax. From the standpoint of increased quality of life, we thus deliver benefits across all of its aspects: social, cultural and economic.

Key words: water, architectural designing, floating architecture, public buildings, recreation.
