"The form of this water tower serving the university campus was developed in collaboration with a structural engineer. Two elements support the cubic water tanks: a vertical fin wall of 15 centimeters thickness and a cylinder permitting access to the storage tank. The fin wall and cylinder are connected by two stainless steel braces. The reinforced concrete construction rises from a shallow reflecting pool."
