About the Show

"Impossible Builds" is an access all areas look at the creation of some of the world’s most ambitious, complex and technologically advanced construction projects. From subaquatic homes and the ultimate in billionaire luxury to futuristic towers and pencil thin skyscrapers, these are the structures they said could never be built. But now, using revolutionary technology and cutting-edge construction materials, three previously impossible builds are taking shape across the world.

While some architects are looking up – others are looking down. Follow the build to make living beneath the waves into a reality as a team in Dubai attempts to construct a floating house combining the best of land and marine design. Will they achieve the impossible?
