A Palace For Nature

Sergio Sanz Pont

This building is the creation of a natural oasis surrounded by botanical self-sustainability in the arid desert. Inside there is an irrigation cloud system, with water taken from the aquifer below, which runs into the inner skin and culminates in the central dome. The desalinated water is stored in lakes scattered themed gardens and supported by photovoltaic panels. In this example, the architecture and design reflect the history and culture of the place in time, creating a contemporary structure.
