Imagine affordable houses that sit on the ground when it's dry, float in the event of a flood, and come right back down to where they were before when the water recedes. That's Elizabeth English's vision. The University of Waterloo architecture professor has designed an easy and cheap way to make the existing "shotgun" houses of Louisiana amphibious, so they will survive another Hurricane Katrina. She is now applying her research to homes in other flood-prone areas. http://www.buoyantfoundation.org/
