Designed for the Zaragoza Expo 2008, the challenge was to use water - the theme of the Expo - as an architectural element. The walls are composed of digitally controlled water droplets, which can generate writing, patterns or access spaces. The result is a space that is interactive and reconfigurable; each wall can potentially become an entrance or exit, while the internal partitions can shift depending on the number of people present. The only material elements are the two boxes and the roof, which is a sort of curtain that can move vertically and flatten to the ground removing the presence of the pavilion entirely. The Digital Water Pavilion was TIME Magazine as 'Best Project of the Year' in 2008.
