Water and sanitation

Fog can be a hazard for traffic but a valuable source of fresh water in arid and semi-arid regions. This simple and low-cost architectural skin captures moisture and transforms it into usable water. The Bionic Breathing Skin is connected to a water purification and running water system.

JURY STATEMENT

Large cities with high population density and functioning sanitation systems offer great potential to save natural resources. This design implements a future-oriented and intelligent water management solution for large buildings. This represents a significant contribution to solving one of the great resource management challenges of sustainable modern architecture.
