The 'Foram' is a conceptual coastal building located along the seaside of Santa Monica that is designed to be a water purification pavilion to provide clean drinking water to the local area. The space will be able to convert salty seawater into fresh water that consumers can drink and enjoy. The structure is also meant to be portable and easy to set-up, so that it can be used in cities all around the world to provide clean drinking water to citizens.

The pavilion features a futuristic curved aesthetic that renders the space a functional water purification system as well as a structure civilians can walk through. The space utilizes curved bars that contain the water and interconnect to form the floating station. The design hopes to relieve cities suffering from drought.
