Behold, proposed apartment tower / water feature from the drawing boards (actually, the CAD studios) of China. Further proof that whatever might be done , will be done, no matter how fucking stupid. The list of things that might go wrong with this scheme is too long to trouble you with, but just start with the mold question. Imagine, too, the racket this will create for those living on the first four floors. Then move on to the structural issues…. Thanks to Andrew Pate for nominating this humdinger.

    Might be useful in a fire.

    Imagine the amount of mist generated by the water feature. It would end up all over the roof, the street below and the adjacent buildings.

    Think of the size pumps necessary and the energy consumed. Better build a new coal-fired power plant to run it!

    too late,
    someone put that concept out there already:

    Another “solution” in search of a problem. Why not a building upside down and a water feature too? Feel free to add “features” as they come to mind.

    It reminds me of the “Waterfalls” “art” installation in NYC about 10 years ago. A vast amount of money and energy spent to no public purpose.

    This is the ultimate waterboarding experience.

    Frank Lloyd Wright handled it much more elegantly
