# ARCHITECTURES WITHOUT ARCHITECTS /// Floating Islands on the lake Titicaca

A very interesting construction takes place on the lake Titicaca (between Peru and Bolivia). In fact, the Uros people regularly build up islands with rushes and mud. The islands are then floating and probably drift a little bit with the current.
These islands can also recall the British Project Habakkuk during the Second World War which was proposing to build aircraft carrier islands made out of wood and ice !
