Water Towers

I feel like these are under-represented in the architecture field. There are quite a few interesting towers out there.

Kuwait Water Towers, Kuwait City, Kuwait (1976)

Ystad(small town in Sweden) has a new one that is quite striking, if worn down, up in its hill...


Mapio.net

...punningly named "Aquarellen". Mixing "Chanterelle" (a type of mushroom) with aqua(self-explanatory), you get the Swedish word for aquarelle (a type of water colour painting).

This one replaced the early 1900's "Baby Pacifier", which has been converted into extremely impractical housing and event space.
