To remain suspended without sinking or falling

I just discovered Floater Magazine, "an inventory for floatation mechanisms within architecture," published and edited out of Athens, Greece.

[Image: The cover of Floater Magazine #01; view larger].

The first issue includes articles about Laputa Island, OMA's Riga Port City development, floating territories, and an artistic device called the "Oscillation of the Sea," among many others, including the magazine's inaugural editorial statement.
The design of the website itself – with mobile images you can rearrange according to taste – can be quite cool, as in this featurette about the micronational principality of Sealand.
Better yet, all the articles can be downloaded as PDFs – so you can read them on the go.

I'm sorry, but Floaters? Really? Good concept: Terrible name.
