Background: the UN announced a predicted global shortage in drinking water as soon as 2025. However, a careful examination of our environment reveals that we are surrounded by an ocean of drinking water.
The project engages in the design and development of drinking water facilities for the public space in the Western world, which will serve as available source of drinking water for passersby. The water will be produced from the natural moisture in the air. The facility will include a panel with photovoltaic cells that will supply the device's energy needs. The system does not rely on water supply systems, and does not require plumbing or a connection to electricity.

How does it work? The device sucks the air through a filter in order to eliminate pollutants. The moisture in the air is condensed through cooling and the water is collected in a tank at the bottom of the facility. The water is pumped to an upper container through an additional filtering system that adds a controlled amount of minerals to the water.
