Water Tower of Kerava, Finland 2001-2002

Open Architectural Competition

The jury approved 186 anonymous proposals to participate.

Our aim was to create a rational sculpture that would reflect the dynamics of water. The structure is based on three hyperbolic paraboloids that form the load bearing walls. The tower is ~53m tall and is clad with sheets of aluminium.
