In the midst of a rapid urbanization process,'lanting'or floating houses, the legacy of culture and architecture of past Sintang, are still present and needed by the community. This paper discussed the way of life of lanting community in the midst of vast urbanization of the city. Through the grounded-Theory method, this study found that lanting has a significant role as a linkage between the rural and urban community.
