Partially Floating Platforms on the Marine Drive, Mumbai

We identified our site as one of the main boulevards and promenades along the coastline of Mumbai. It is the Marina Drive – a 3 km long 6 lane boulevard and a pedestrian promenade along the sea front, that is part of the most attractive residential and catering facilities. There seemed to be a gap between the sea itself, the magnificent views of the sunsets it provides and the pedestrian area, that is situated so close to it. This is why we decided to try and provide a suitable link between between the inland and the sea. A detachable and easily installable non-permanent structure that can aid the people to get to the the seafront and the water itself. It also has to designed to fit in between and above the tetra-pod wave breakers, which are a serious obstacle for reaching the sea.
