This idea is quite old...

Julius Caesar, I believe, invented a pontoon-style bridge....
The US Army (and other armies, I'm sure) ,once had an entire unit ready to bridge the Rhine at a moment's notice using pontoons....

As an extension of the subject; how about a floating modular large building or city-block?

And, using your honeycomb technique, can we make it self-sustainable
as well, by filling the diagonel frames, where appropriate, with "earth columns" as described by Zoing-in Kim?
