Urban areas typically have minimal amounts of exposed ground, forcing all water to drain to the sewers. This problem is addressed through the addition of a non-profit organization concerned with water conservation on site. The aim of the project was to invert the typical conception of waterproofing a building to prevent all water penetration to a structure that freely allows water within, contributing both aesthetically and practically to the architecture as well as in recharging the ground water. The diagram manifests itself throughout the project in varying scales, from the main circulation path and method of water collection, to the window details and exhibition monitor.

This project was featured in the University of Michigan student exhibition in winter 2008.
