Lack of fresh water might be one of those terrifying realities we have to deal with in our lifetimes. Although they may not be necessary, many technologies are being developed to prepare for such an event or at least slow down the rate at which we're presently consuming. The Rain Collector Skyscraper is a brilliant design that utilizes the building's physical features in order to harness fresh water.
