Moinest / temporary house


Even in dry desert areas, there is a way to get water out of the air. It is a typical technique called ‘Fog catcher’. ‘Fog catcher’ is an installation that collects water from fog using a mesh. We attached the fog catcher to the house. This is for users to collect and use water directly from inside the house. When dew forms in the net at the top of the house and falls to the roof, the water flows into the pillar, allowing users to use the water directly through the tap connected to the pillar. Also, because the house is removable and easy to assemble, it can be distributed to those who need temporary residence and suffer from water shortages.
