Designer Arturo Vittori has designed large sculptures that are to be used to provide safe water to regions that need it the most. According to an article, these water towers are almost 30 feet tall and can collect over 25 gallons of water every day by “harvesting atmospheric water vapor.”
Called WarkaWater towers, named after the Warka tree in Ethiopia, these sculptures are made up of two sections. The outer section is made up of bamboo stalks and the inner section is made up of plastic mesh. As dew forms, it runs down the mesh material into a basin at the bottom collecting water.
Since these are very simple structures to put together, the idea is that local residents can create them by using natural material available.
