As architects and builders look for new ways to house the world's ever-expanding urban population, they're starting to turn to new horizons - out on the water. One Planet visits the Netherlands to see a floating home in Amsterdam, and speak to an architect planning a whole floating housing estate. Plus, we speak to the Californian thinktank planning new communities on the high seas, and visit the floating markets in Bangkok.
