'water vapor' by sang wook park + lee sin jeong + lee ho young + jo hyeon ju iida 2010 awards

‘water vapor’ by sang-wook park, lee sin-jeong, lee ho-young and jo hyeon-ju

‘water vapor’ by sang-wook park, lee sin-jeong, lee ho-young, and jo hyeon-ju from korea is one of the shortlisted entries from more than 4000 participants in the ‘iida awards 2010‘ competition, organized by designboom in collaboration with incheon metropolitan city.

the solar and wind-powered design converts air in to vapor by causing temperature differences through a vortex tube.

designers’ own words: ‘the purpose is to create an environment where plants can live with soil moisture and water provided by the conversion of air to vapor in areas with contaminated drinking water and deserted soil.’

'water vapor' by sang wook park + lee sin jeong + lee ho young + jo hyeon ju   iida 2010 awards the central vortex tube spins at a rate of 1,000,000 RPM, compressing the air and releasing warm air between 30-90 degrees C.

  • This is crazy!!! You are interfereing with the water cycle of nature….this vapor is supposed to travel up and form clouds and give us rain… this kind of design will only reduce rainfalls even more…..how can this be called GREEN??!!!!

  • Aren’t there such devices in the science fiction novel Dune? I like it when science-fiction-devices became real-world-devices.

  • pretty pictures & theoretical what if technology. no research or testing undertaken whatsoever. truth is such materials to build these do not exist in Africia therefore it must all be shipped in. using oil. also made from concrete. co2. at best will work for 6 months till dust causes it to fail on moving parts and clouding the panels. i grow tired of typing. yawn.

  • I think it is capable of being done. A similar approach you can see in the watertower project by Hugon Kowalski

  • It is very experimental, any info on the feasibility?
    Interesting.

  • How far will the vapor travel before being reabsorbed by the air?
