The duo of Ryszard Rychlicki and Agnieszka Nowak, of H3AR, was awarded a special mention for their proposal in the 2010 eVolo skyscraper competition (see the winners on our previous article). The eVolo competition attracts innovative designers and receives hundreds of eccentric proposals. For this project, designed by 4th year student, the skyscraper is comprised of a system of gutters to catch as much rainfall as possible. The water captured and processed by the building may be used for flushing toilets, feeding washing machines, watering plants, cleaning floors and other domestic applications. More about the skyscrapper after the break. The water collected with the skyscraper will supply 85 liters of rain water to meet the daily needs of the inhabitants (each user averages a daily consumption of about 150 liters).
