A 126-acre badly abused landscape has been transformed into a dreamlike floating forest that regulates floods, provides habitat for wildlife, offers an array of recreational opportunities and a new way to connect with nature, creating a replicable model to address the multiple challenges of floods, habitat restoration and recreational demands. Perforated aluminum plate is the main material used in contemporary designs for the installed structures, bridges, platforms, pavilions and viewing towers creating an arresting contrast with the natural setting.
