Picnic-Improving Contraptions
W.E.T. Beacon Improves Park Atmospheres by Harnessing Sun and Rain

The W.E.T. system is many things, but you’d likely not be able to name most of them at first glance. Most obviously, perhaps, is its function as an umbrella or a parasol, protecting people in the park from sun and rain. The Water Enhanced Tempelhof was designed specifically in response to a challenge to improve the grilling experience in Berlin’s Tempelhof Park so that the public can enjoy al fresco eating in all sorts of weather.

The domed top of the device catches rain and stores it in a tank beneath the ground. This H2O can then be used to supplement the garden’s irrigation and to offer a refreshing mist to people on hot summer days. The W.E.T. is capped with solar panels that enable it to power a light at night. Haiden Goggin, Christina Fenton, Anthony Traviglini and Jonathan Holland will have made picnicking even more pleasurable.
