Spanish architect Orlando de Urrutia has produced a concept building design that promises to make water out of air and sunlight while housing coastal resort clientele. Dubbed ‘The Water Building,’ the design resembles a huge water drop and will employ state-of-the-art Teex Micron technology to generate pure, drinkable water from the atmosphere using solar electric power.

The futuristic project combines an aesthetic design with energy-gathering photovoltaic glass, vents and equipment to work the magical feat of water-extraction and purification. It is intended to model eco-sustainability and raise environmental awareness by enveloping its guests in the water drop form.
