It's an idea that goes back to Britain 5000 years ago. There is historic evidence that the inhabitants of the British Isles were building islands back then. Some experts believe in the 21st century it may be the next grand idea by sea. Organizations like the BBC are tracking the trend.
Artificially built islands in the middle of the ocean are gaining growing interest and investment. The founder of PayPal is in the process of building a floating city off French Polynesia that is sustainable and eco-friendly. Other companies, startups, luxury home builders and even universities globally are looking into ocean born solutions to keep humans in habitable spaces going forward as Climate Change intensifies.

Artificial islands like Dubai created in 2001 with its symmetrical Palm Islands. As the Brits did 5000 years ago, what goes around comes around. It could help humans adapt with Climate Change.
