The World’s First Floating Island

Soul Flora is an $84 million project funded by the Seoul Metropolitan Government, based on an idea submitted by a Seoul citizen to ‘Oasis’, its online policy suggestion forum. It is one strand of a wider project to regenerate the riverside.

Named ‘Viva’, the first islet will be home to a range of cultural and entertainment activities. The largest of the islets will be ‘Vista’, featuring a large hall for plays, concerts, and festivals. The smallest island will be ‘Terra’, a base for sports and leisure activities, a club house and a dock for boats. Each islet will be anchored to concrete blocks on the bottom of the river and will have a combined area of 9,995 square metres.
