Water silo Beersel
2008, Beersel, Belgium
A water droplet levitated by forest trees.
In a contemporary way the new water silo symbolizes it's function. A drop of water adapts to its environment. In a free fall it's aerodynamic, lying on a leaf it's flatter and rounded.
Like a huge drop of dew, the new water silo is lifted by the trees. The shiny skin reflects the sky; the sun's rays will reflect deep into the forest. The mirroring skin reflects the image of the existing landscape. The drop shows us it's surroundings.
