Word of the Week: Instauration

in·stau·ra·tion \ˌin-ˌstȯ-ˈrā-shən, ˌin(t)-stə-\

1: restoration after decay, lapse, or dilapidation
2: an act of instituting or establishing something

A long time ago, a group of people attempted an instauration of floating houses as the standard.  Obviously it failed, and the more easily-accessed ground houses became the norm.
