City Water


Of the abundance of water Austria has to offer, Vienna draws its share from various springs in the Northern Limestone Alps in Lower Austria and Styria.
In a city where even Hydrants are supplied with fresh mountain water, public water access is taken for granted and made little use of.
The Hydrant Attachment acts as a public reminder of where the Viennese water comes from, celebrating Vienna Water by making a detour back to its origins. With the trickle of water through mountain stones, it encases a small memory of the mountain spring miles away.
Quickly unmountable for emergency use, it also calls out the redundancy of the water supply and questions its lavish use.
