Water Tower – Aman Yusuf

IMG_6871

Under Professor Ginger Krieg Dosier, an up and coming architect/scientist, Aman Yusuf designed his water tower to become a focal point in the neighborhood of Jumeriah.  It not only acts as water source, but meeting area with its tea bar and over looking observation deck.  Its program is simple, but the model itself is what sparked our interest.  Pulling from the network of veins within the leaf, the structure of the model seems to grow out of the ground wrapping the building and pushing the tower up.  Check it out after the jump!

“This project is the design of a Water Tower, sited in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The Water Tower acts as an icon in the neighborhood of Jumeriah, and it incorporates a tea bar and an observation deck at the top.

Similarly, the Water Tower distributes water from the elevated tank to the entire neighborhood.”  -Aman Yusuf
