Abstract

Greece currently uses 86% of its freshwater resources for agriculture, an unsustainable practice in light of climate change projections for more frequent droughts across Southern Europe. This project provides recommendations to the American Farm School for a multipurpose floating island that works alongside its water recycling system to conserve freshwater for irrigation. This was accomplished through discussions, interviews, workshops, literature review, and archival research. The final design is an attractive natural water treatment system that serves to educate the campus.
