Let-it-flood is a building able to adapt to a scenario of extreme precipitation, raised water levels and unreliable energy. Programme-wise, it is a community educational building that provided information on sustainability issues and promoted self-awareness. A 24 m tall water tank is placed in the atrium of the building and it is transformed into a human aquarium when sufficient water is collected and filtered. The ground floor is designed to flood, thus a series of ramps is used to provide access in the building during different climatic conditions,
