FLOATING ISLAND GARDENS
LONDON BOROUGH OF ISLINGTON, KINGS CROSS
R-LA and frog environmental teamed up to create pocket wetlands and
floating landscapes using Biohaven floating islands on the Regent's
Canal in Kings Cross and Baynes Street.
The Biohaven landscape biomimics the principles of a natural system to improve water quality and create better landscapes for people and wildlife.
The floating landscape provides an inexpensive new habitat for both terrestrial and aquatic organisms, cleansing the water through the combination of four different processes without the need for chemical additives or energy. The resulting aesthetic quality provides a wide range of social and environmental benefits.
