An architect in Dubai created a model of a house suspended in the air, helping to solve land scarcity and cope with earthquakes and tsunamis.

Project "Rising Oases" by professor Georges Kachaamy, director of the Center for Research, Innovation and Design at the American University of Dubai (AUB) was introduced at Dubai Design Week from November 11. The focus of the project is the floating mid-air architecture developed by Kachaamy over the past 10 years. "Rising Oases" outlines the living spaces hovering above the streets, helping to free people from everyday stress.

Kachaamy thought of floating architecture for the first time as a student in Japan 13 years ago. Over the past 5 years, he has gradually increased the size of design models. "When I started making the model, it was very small, only 10 cm long. The current model is nearly 2 meters long and the next version will be even bigger," Kachaamy said.

The architect also tested many different technologies with the floating model. The current system employs magnetic buffer technology, which allows the object to be lifted by the force of two opposite magnets. Kachaamy uses ultra-light 3D printed plastic materials for models to maximize the size of objects the magnetic force can lift.

Floating architecture has many diverse potentials. Overcoming spatial constraints makes planning more effective. It requires less construction land and less pressure on green spaces that need conservation. Floating architecture also increases disaster resilience such as earthquakes and floods.

Kachaamy is aiming to make bigger and taller models, moving towards the full-sized version. The architect focuses on researching new technologies and materials that can turn projects into reality. His next goal is to create a large floating roof. Magnetic-pad experts emphasize that this technology is limited in height. Kachaamy's models are just a few inches from the sole and are expensive.
