This pointed Corten steel pavilion is designed by architects Dina Haddadin and Rasem Kamal to provide relief in the Jordanian desert. As crossing the landscape can prove to be an extremely difficult activity that may result in heat exhaustion, the creatives develop a nomad-inspired structure, stressing the use of low-maintenance pipes and woven goat hair.

The oasis-like Corten steel pavilion is "informed by the architecture of indigenous Bedouin's tents and the structure of Jordan's national flower, the black iris." Dina Haddadin and Rasem Kamal create the structure to provide shelter from the sun and warmth for the winter months, all the while being a functional water-collecting system. The liquid will be gathered by a fabric-made cone structure that will draw fresh drinking water from the occasional rain and fog.
