15:15 RAIN CATCHER | Hawker Stall Design

OBJECTIVE
15:15´s Rain Catcher was one of the exhibits of the 2009 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture.

RESPONSES
Our mission is to build an Hawker Stall (大排档) which celebrates our unique local heritage. Our design pays tribute to the Hawker - the silent observer of the city´s growth and prosperity. Within a larger context, the event is to celebrate the poetics of our monsoon climate.   

The Hawker Stall also functions as a rain collector: the collected water acted as the weight which anchors the structure on ground.  The collected water is filtered and may be used for washing.
