Water Collection from Air

The WatAir, designed by Joseph Cory of Geotectura and Eyal Malka of Malka Architects from Haifa, Israel, collects moisture—dew—from the air, then filters and funnels it into a reservoir for drinking.

Distressed populations and regions suffering from natural disasters aren’t the only ones who can benefit from the WatAir dew harvesting system, but they are a likely match. Cory is working on an updated design that includes photovoltaic cells in order to facilitate the building of an emergency city. It is part of a joint venture with the Dutch company Creative Construction.
