I know, a second water-thingy-skyscraper blog today. I must be thirsty or something. Honestly, though, I just love this visually stimulating design. This one was awarded 2nd place in Evolo's 2010 Skyscraper Competition
The Ciliwung Recovery Program
is situated in Jakarta, Indonesia on the extremely polluted Ciliwung river. It is designed
to collect the garbage on the riverbank and then purify the water through three phases of mega-filters. The first phase separates the different types of garbage, and uses the available organic garbage as fertilizer. Phase two removes hazardous chemicals and adds beneficial minerals, and phase three processes the recyclable waste.
The project also aims to eliminate the slums along the river by employing residents as well as offering housing within its confines. Finally, it is meant to be completely sustainable by utilizing wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.
