The project is a small device that brings the daylight into the underground space and collects water at the desert. The site is located at a town called Coober Pedy in the outback Australia. This is the biggest opal mining and trading place in the world, but most of the residents live in the underground dwellings developed from the mining tunnels due to the harsh weather. The project applied a component inspired by the microscopic structure of the opal. It can bring the daylight to the underground in a romantic way as well as collect the water.
