Wish I’d a done it!

What would you call this;  sustainable, green, high design, trendy, rustic, maybe vernacular?  Mostly I would call it beautiful.  This project is designed with utterly single minded focus around two functions.  One of them is the collection and storage of water and the other is cooling, natural or otherwise.  The fact that the building is energy efficient and serves as an outpatient health clinic becomes almost irrelevant, taken for granted in the face of such resolute purpose of design.  The place could as easily be a house, barn, shop, or school room.  Whatever the final purpose, it will be cool and have water.  Rare, indeed, is the project with a program so simple as to beget such an elegant solution, and by the way, it was commissioned by a sophisticated collaboration between government and charitable organizations, not exactly what I would term “real people.”  There must be a lesson here?
