Modern Architecture – Water Drop Resort


Designed in the shape of a water droplet, the Water Building Resort will be the first building ever to convert air into water, using solar power energy. A sunny, southerly facing facade made of photovoltaic glass will harness solar energy, allowing light to pass through. The northern facade will contain a ventilation system that will convert humid air and condensation into pure drinking water.

The bottom floor will also house a water treatment facility for purifying salty sea and rain water, along with a center to control water quality.

As the Water Building Resort is a resort complex, guests will be able to enjoy restaurants, gyms, exhibition halls, hotel and conference rooms, spa services, and an underwater aquarium; all of which will be based on the theme of water, the environment and renewable energy.
