Maricarmen Husson's curator insight, January 10, 9:48 PM

La torre WarkaWater es una estructura poco probable encontrar que sobresale del paisaje etíope. A los 30 metros de altura y 13 metros de ancho, no es un medio tan grande como su árbol del mismo nombre (que puede vislumbrarse 75 pies de altura), pero es llamativo, no obstante. La torre larguirucho, de bambú celosía forrada con malla de poliéster de color naranja, no es arte, aunque sí especie de lo parece. Más bien, la estructura está diseñada para escurrir el agua fuera del aire, proporcionando una fuente sostenible de H2O para los países en desarrollo.
