    UrbanLab, Endrestudio and Method Design came up with the winning design for the 2012 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP) called Virtual Water, a one-of-a-kind project that sheds light on environmental issues like the usage of water. The Virtual Water project will use thousands of gallons of rainwater from the PS1 courtyard and brings to mind all the water used during manufacturing processes of countless materials around today. The Virtual Water collects, cleans, conserves and uses summertime rain water and has this flow through conical canopies to create six different atmospheres, each a unique aesthetic treat that serves to inform observers in regards to water conservation.
