Rainwater recovery system for community areas

Water is becoming a scarce resource, collecting it should be a communal objective.

Collecting water, a fundamental life-source, can also be a pretext for making human connections. The rainwater collected in the courtyards of buildings becomes the basis of this system making water available to everyone. The movement of the flow is diverted to bring the inhabitants together, engaging them in the process from the collection to the distribution of the water serving the needs of urban agriculture.
