Eco Friendly Resort

Eco Friendly

Given some of the intriguing and unusual eco-friendly resort concepts we've seen of late, a luxury hotel in the shape of an enormous drop of water that's designed to convert air into drinking water with the assistance of solar power should come as no surprise.

The Water Building is designed by Spanish architect Orlando de Uremia which produced a concept building design that promises to make water out of air and sunlight while housing coastal resort clientele. The design resembles a huge water drop and will employ state-of-the-art Teex Micron technology to generate pure, drinkable water from the atmosphere using solar electric power. The futuristic project combines an aesthetic design with energy-gathering photovoltaic glass, vents and equipment to work the magical feat of water-extraction and purification. It is intended to model eco-sustainability and raise environmental awareness by enveloping its guests in the water drop form.

The Water Building resort is not only architecturally stunning, its designers hope it will be the first building in the world capable of converting air into pure water using an innovative generator and solar power. The facade of the building is designed to face the sun and is covered in photovoltaic glass, which not only lets light in but also effectively captures the sun's rays to be converted into solar power. The opposite side of the building uses a latticed design for ventilation and the air is also harnessed to produce fresh water using a unique generator – the Teex Micron.
