The melting glaciers result in flooding but sometimes there is drought too so the ‘Himalaya Water Tower’ was designed for regulating this process by collecting, purifying, and freezing water for storage.

The skyscraper has a very unique design with the six tentacle-like pipes for collecting water and four cores for storing ice cubes. The Himalaya Water Tower design also features a transport system at the base of the structure.
