MIT designs Water Walls
MIT has constructed a building with walls made entirely of water and this was showcased at the recent opening of the Zaragoza World Expo in Spain. This first-of-its-kind Digital Water Pavilion illustrates the potential of digital architecture to create spaces that dynamically adjust to people and conditions.
“The design for the water pavilion grew out of a central challenge: How to make fluid, reconfigurable architecture?” said Carlo Ratti, head of MIT’s SENSEable City Laboratory. “Our building aims to stand as a possible answer to this endeavor.”
