Poreform: Water absorptive surface and subterranean basin, Las V

This design proposal repositions water infrastructure as a civic project. Facing a significant shortage of water in an arid region, local drainage systems are incapable of collecting the water that floods the Las Vegas valley when it rains. Giant underground tanks with a capacity of 75,000 megaliters that can be used as event locations during dry periods swallow the rainwater. They are covered with a porous concrete surface designed for optimal water collection.
