Do you mean visually floating architecture firmly attached to the ground but seeming to float above grade level? Do you mean physically floating architecture such as the proposed "Freedom Ship?"

Buckminster Fuller, among others in the mid-20th century, proposed "floating citites" that would be anchored offshore near metropolitan areas. He also proposed cities that would be so large and contain so much volume that the heated air inside would make these huge spheres float in the air.
