The article describes the main aspects of form and functional organization of modular architecture on the water. The leading approach to the study is based on the system analysis of the types of modular floating foundations, above-water structures of various configurations and their functions. As a result of the analysis of realized and conceptual projects, two types of modular bases were identified: simple, consisting of repeating geometric forms (square, rectangle, circle, hexagon), and complex. The main typologies of above-water structures are also highlighted: a pavilion, a low-rise and a high-rise building. The study examined the main programs that floating structures provide: residential, public and industrial. Characteristic features of the modular floating structures are drawn on the basis of the identified classifications. The article can be used for practical and conceptual research in the field of modular architecture and structures in the water environment.
