In Hot, Dry Texas, Unique Roof Design Helps Residents Collect Water

American architect Vincent Snyder designed the UR22 House in Dallas, Texas, equipping it with this unique roof that directs rainwater down a central fold and into a collection tank for storage and later reuse.

The angled, slate-clad facade of the UR22 House reminds me of the abstract renderings of graffuturist street artists like Nawer, Graphic Surgery, and Matt W. Moore.

That’s just a surface comparison, of course.

    Cool.
    I’d like to see the same thing accomplished, but with curves instead of lines.
