For centuries, architecture has tackled water in endless innovative ways, from fun indoor pools to tranquil outdoor fountains, soaring waterfalls, and massive lakes. Water features, sometimes serving aesthetic purposes, but also often acting as centers of activity or promoting sustainability, can take countless different forms and serve many different purposes. Below we synthesize a range of water features adopted by innovative contemporary architectural projects, from single-family residences to large commercial complexes.
Some structures, rather than connecting water internally, embrace existing landscapes and are built on, around, or through larger water features. Alvaro Siza and Carlos Castanheira’s Building Above Water places the offices of a huge chemical factory atop the huge artificial reservoir that serves the complex. Constructed with a white concrete and glass aesthetic that embraces light and reflectivity, the curvilinear form of the structure replicates the natural fluidity feeling and challenges traditionally orthogonal industrial architecture.
