ARTIFICIAL ISLANDS AROUND THE WORLD
Island construction dates back to pre- historic times in ancient Egypt, Ireland, Scotland, and Mexico.
They can, however, expand on existing islets or combine many small islets, or build and consolidate natural reef formations.
Artificial islands may vary in size from small islets reclaimed solely to support a single pillar of a building or structure, to those that support entire communities and cities. Early artificial islands included floating structures in still waters.
In modern times artificial islands are usually formed by Land Reclamation
