Wave Surfing Building

Ocean inspired design. Big wave that comes from the ocean, with dark deep water in the bottom, ocean-green water in the middle and white foam on top.
Plenty of water everywhere: 4 pools, 12 streams, 4 tall waterfalls and 2 Niagara-like wide waterfalls.
People live ‘inside’ the wave, balconies are like surfboards! You surf the wave every time you come on the balcony.
Water streams start on the highest point of the residential area (right beneath the top pool) and go down to the two lowest pools, connecting all four pools together, showing the water flow ‘inside’ the wave. Four water streams create waterfalls over the hole in the middle of the wave. The water stream back is transparent, so people who live beneath the stream can enjoy the calm water flow over their apartments!

Lights are installed in a way to show the major shapes of the building in the night, to amplify the wave idea.
