Photographic Print. A water container as an architectural Modernist tower near Margueron, Riocaud in France.
Water towers are the perfect meeting of architecture, science and structural engineering. The structure of a water tower must support the weight of the water and the most economical way to support the substantial weight of water is with a spherical shape that converts the fluid pressure into tension through the mechanism of hoop stress. Having a tall, narrow cylinder means that as the volume of water changes in the water tower, the height of the surface of the water changes by a larger amount and so the variation in water head pressure produced is high. I liked the random position of the sun spot and aeroplane contrails against the water tower in the golden afternoon light.
Colours are as accurate as possible but may differ slightly due to screen calibrations.
