A volume dedicated to an extraordinary digital architectural project, a dream come true, designated by Time magazine 'Best Invention of the Year', as the Digital Water Pavilion makes its debut at the Saragozza Expo.

The chosen theme for the 2008 International Exhibition to be held in Saragozza is ‘Water and Sustainable Development’ and, appropriately enough, the expo area lies along the banks of the river Ebro.
This is where the Digital Water Pavilion will be erected. The whole structure resembles a waterfall, with the water turned on and off by a digitally controlled system to create access points to the pavilion. The outer skin is a digital display simulating running water for an overall waterfall effect.
It has been designed as a mobile structure, with the roof mounted on hydraulic pistons that enable it to be raised or lowered as necessary. On closure the roof can be lowered to the ground, completely dismantling the pavilion.
