Chongqing is one of China’s hottest, most humid cities in summer, but at Palm Island breezes blowing over the water and its buildings’ reflective facades help to reduce temperatures

This newsletter is devoted entirely to the element of water. Various urban projects are currently making use of its diverse aesthetic and psychological effects. Water surfaces sometimes serve as a mirror, in which the reflected buildings seem to float; at other times, they act as a link between nature and the built environment, or as a public attraction, but whatever use is made of water, it is always eye­­catching.

Creating an Urban Splash: Innovative Water Features in Cities
