Sarvgard Water Building 

Best Implemented Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The realization of the last loop of irrigation management by Yazd wastewater treatment was the origin of designing a building known as the Central Water Utilities Building. It is located in the center of the city-garden. One of the requirements was that four devices measuring 4*4*4 m3 should be placed in the building. In addition, the crane can move inside it. Therefore, it can be said that the project is merely an industrial building of water-related urban facilities. But the design challenge starts here: if facing the citizens to a large building that at first glance looks like a factory shed and has just an industrial-service feature of water refinery function, is that in line with the sociability of city-garden at its social gravity center? Reference to the subject background led designers to decide that the starting point was that today's water buildings should recall yesterday's water buildings. Through the manifest, the term inspiration concept, which in the Persian language means' taking fire from fire’ helped the designer.
