Building With Sun, Water and Air – Hiroshi Sambuichi Interview

Architect Hiroshi Sambuichi has designed an interesting underground installation called ‘The Water’ at the Cisterns in Copenhagen, Denmark. Sambuichi talks about bringing out the natural beauty of the place. ”I want people to understand that they live in beautiful places”. The installation is certainly ethereal and features, among others, a small moss covered island that bathes in natural light amidst the darkness of the Cisterns.

Fountain-To-Go – With Live Plants

Fountain-To-Go is a small water feature you can take with you on a picnic. It has a solar powered fountain and a beautiful array of wetland plants. The plants are placed in felt pouches connected to the water so you don’t have to water them.

The Fountain is easy to maintain: remove the plant pouches, wash the bucket, add new water and put the pouches back. For easy transportation, the fountain has a detachable carrying handle and a lid that prevents spills.

Adding a fountain to your balcony, yard or a local park is a great way to boost local wildlife: birds and butterflies will enjoy it. And they will also make your urban scenery and soundscape more vivid. Birdsongs, anyone? Just take the Fountain-To-Go with you, sit back and relax!
