Water Building Resort

Orlando de Urrutia

Location: TBA- Coast of France

Straight out of the future- this building still in concept stages- is designed to replica an actual rain drop in air.  The slick exterior houses solar panels and a state of the art technology called Teexmicron that is the first ever in it's kind to turn air into water via solar power.

The architects also plan for the building to catch rain water and salt water in the bottom of the building, to be treated and used within. Although this is still in the design stage, it shows how creative and out of the box architects are willing to be these days. Many architects question how to respond to nature through design and how to mimic it's natural aesthetics, but few know how to capture the qualities without ruining them. Time can only tell where this building fits in.
