ARC20: Aquatecture - Studio Sway

Shaakira has been fascinated by water as a material in her projects. Since the recent drought in her native country South Africa, she has shifted focus towards using her design work as a response to what she observed in Cape Town's drought in 2017. During that time, people’s behavior towards water changed very quickly. Day Zero, the day the city’s taps would be shut off was anticipated. These unexpected changes in our climate have all inspired Shaakira to create something that would change the way we experience water in the urban environment whilst offering an aesthetic and compact solution.
