Floating Islands in Copenhagen

Marshall Blecher and Magnus Maarbjerg are creating a archipelago of floating islands in Copenhagen, the Copenhagen Islands. The first one is CPH-Ø1, a wooden platform and a linden tree. Eventually the archipelago will grow to include floating swimming platforms, stages, parks and a floating garden.
