BB&B Architects Collects Rainwater and Uses It to Produce Clouds

BB&B Architects research the concept of self-supportive tensegrity structures originally that was explored by Mark Richardson during his PhD studies. The architectural company develops a large monument constructed of bolts held together in tension. The issue that arose was the condensation that generated in the range of fluctuating temporal environments.

The design team attached a module that runs on solar power to the end of every bolt in the structure -- this module's job is to collect the condensation that builds up and repurposes it as humidified must instead. In doing so, it turns the bolted structural monument into a cloud generator. The new BB&B Architects structure completely depends on the natural occurrences of the weather cycles, so clouds will be produced at random intervals.
