-FINALIST of Waterless World Competition


Irony is living in a world whose surface makes up 70% of its water, but only being able to drink three percent of it. The greater irony still, are the modern global cities adjacent to rivers and beach fronts while staring at the threat of water scarcity. Water Everywhere proposes a sustainable infrastructure to distill drinkable water using the earth’s already existing and abundant water source—the ocean. One proposal of the infrastructure will provide fresh water to Prince’s Island in Istanbul, Turkey. Due to the steep and narrow  


Water Everywhere studies the prospect of a creating larger scale versions of the traditional water stills, with higher output and efficiency. The overgrown stills are large inflatable public sculptures along waterfronts that collect the evaporated water in the warmer sunny seasons. During rainy seasons, the still tops can be inverted to serve as a rain catcher. As the rain water is collected, water will feed down tubes to be filtered remotely–bringing new meaning to the term “rainy day.” Water Everywhere will promote sustainably harvested water, with space for public engagement.
