This project strives to create a new interface between humans and water by exploring the reciprocal relationships of material, form, activities, and environment. Water is used as design inspiration. It's a mediator between humans and environment. It serves as an essential building material in the project. In combination with foam, the water/foam hybrid is used to create a new type of kiosk that responds to the changing of time, season, environment, and human activities. It provides an alternative way for people to interact with water; and it allows the public to gain a deeper understanding of water not as a static material but as a dynamic element that transforms constantly responding to the external world.
