This massive solar powered pipe proposed for the 2016 land art generator initiative by khalili engineers intends to desalinate seawater into drinkable fluid.
The concept — a blend of artistic, technological and architectural properties — floats off the coast of Santa Monica, California ‘reminding us about our dependence on water and about our need to appreciate and value this vital gift,’ the engineers describe.
The results of ‘the pipe’ intend to provide both drinkable water to the city’s primary piping grid, and clear water with twelve percent salinity to be used for thermal baths. while the drinking water is piped to shore, the salt water supplies the baths before it is redirected back into the ocean through a ‘smart release system’.
