Pitch Africa


Neat idea: Building a soccer stadium designed to harvest rainwater in African countries which integrates a love of football with clean water. They also utilize ex-military parachutes as pre-built rainwater harvesting systems as they already have a hole in the center and are made of rip-stop nylon which can take the weight of water.

Why This is Important:
This is taking architecture and applying it to a new context as well as repurposing an old material for a new task instead of designing a high-tech device that can do it.
