(H2O)², “H2O square” is a square shape tower (“square”) that produces water (“H2O”).
The project is a vertical journey that extends vertically the historical passage.
The building is composed of 2 slices that protect the vertical promenade. The south slice, exposed to the sun is equipped with natural protections, photovoltaic panels and greenhouses. The north slice is therefore protected and welcomes the programs.
The height of the building allows to efficiently collecting wind energy. Such energy will be used to produce water and supply the building in electricity.
