And After All, You’re My Water Wall

Here’s a great example of where our priorities are when it comes to architecture. Design a green building and Brad Pitt will get all the credit. But design a building with waterfall walls and you’ll get your work plastered all over the web.

For the International Expo Zaragoza 2008 in Spain a team from MIT has created “something like an inkjet printer on a large scale, which controls droplets of falling water,” describes Carlo Ratti. The water is recycled, so don’t treat the building as your personal Arrowhead dispenser. However, the jets have motion sensors, so if you toss a ball towards the waterfall, a hole will appear at the right place in the stream. Which is exactly the quality you need in your next home.
