Floods in Slovenia and around the world cause a lot of damage. Numerous experts for climate change
warn about the global warming and its consequences, because they will intensify in the future,
therefore flooding will be more frequent and intense. At the same time the population is increasing,
people are building more and more on flood-prone areas, therefore flood damage will increase.
Amphibious construction is excellent flood-proof technique and presents the perfect solution for
different flood-prone areas. It provides optimal security for the property, without the necessary
rebuilding after the flood, has no harmful impact on the environment and preserves the appearance of
neighborhoods and existing architectural character. Ljubljana Marsh is affected with annual flooding.
This thesis introduces the first amphibious building in Slovenia placed on the Ljubljana Marshes,
which is dimensioned and positioned in space according with the regulations and spatial planning
instruments. In the thesis are additionally shown various calculations of the flood water impact on the
building and its response.
