SPHERES imitate the position the state of the body when in contact with water. Each sphere has a different function and program. The functions of each sphere are divided, in the top part the programs where visitors are allowed and in the bottom the research facility. Every sphere has acrylic flooring allowing the water process to be an educational tool.
The research facility is a combination of the desalination (potable water) and osmosis (renewable energy) process. Currently both systems have similar processes using fresh water and salt water. The core process is a lot like desalination in reverse.
