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. Stats for Water Collection from Air Trending: Older & Mild
