This Island is Actually a Massive Buoy Held in Place By 28 Chains

Eat your heart out, Dubai—the world's largest floating island has just opened in Seoul, South Korea, where it'll be joined by several other artificial islands to become an archipelago.

The newly-opened Viva will be the second-largest of the three, and while it's not filled with stalking animals and rare species of fauna, there may be some rare video games in its games arcade, or animals-that-used-to-stalk on the restaurants' menus.


The two other islands will join Viva in September, and make up 20,400sq/m in total, for the various cultural centers and parks planned for the spaces. [Pursuitist]
