The top image explores a plumbing system that encorporates my idea of flowing water.  While it will still initially have to come from a conventional outlet, it will flow along the wall before it is intercepted by a plate which whille allow the water to flow out of the wall in a waterfall kind of motion.

The openings will indicate the way the user will bath themselves… first to wash their feet, then their whole body.

Now I have to decide what I want to happen to shower water.

The lower image explains a guttering system whereby a series of grooves transports rainwater down into little openings in the wall which operate in the same system as the shower openings.  In this way, the building is truly internalised, much like the flight steward.

I initially tried to devise an element which would express something about the function of the building, without giving too much away.

In saying this, I will work on the facade so that the grooves will work AROUND openings.

I will figure out dimensions once I get the go-ahead!
