The brief, to store 1500 m3 of water at different levels, and the architect's desire to visually emphasize the reservoir, minimize construction and expose all connecting pipes, resulted in these three white steel globe-shaped reservoirs 10 metres in diameter, each skewered on a steel pipe at a different height. A system of steel tie rods and compression bars ensures stability.
