Cisterns aren't known for their esthetics, to the extent they are often buried. No "ugly" cistern here. To capture runoff from the roof, STR Architects designed a sculptural 4,000-gallon cistern in which water flows artistically from "petal to petal." A water gauge mounted on the outside of the cistern reveals the number of feet of harvested water. Community gardeners have access to three hose spigots at the base of the cistern to water the raised garden plots; overflow is released into the biology garden.
