Aquatecture Rain Harvesting System.
The recent Day Zero drought in her native South Africa led designer Shaakira Jassat to enrich urban architecture and public spaces with Aquatecture. After witnessing the problems that Cape Town’s residents faced due to the extreme drought, she started to rethink how we can manage and experience water in our urban environment.
Aquatecture is a compact and modular water harvesting system designed to collect falling rainwater. It can be installed as a façade panel on buildings making water harvesting an integrated building feature. It can also be used as free standing elements in landscapes, providing water-harvesting stations at various nodes throughout cities. Aquatecture encourages a more convenient and closer engagement between people and their daily water resources.
