Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir across the Central Park, about 1 billion gallons of water, all contaminated. But imagine boating in the sparkling freshwater. This  amazing shift can be made through a sustainable filtration system that  is part of the hypothetical proposal to create the CEO of Laith Sayigh. Of course, this is a tourist-friendly big apple, Sayigh conceived of  double processing facilities as a magnet to attract tourists.

He  calls it the Central Park Tower - and this is his vision: Outside the  prefabricated yard, the glued laminated wood parts are assembled into a  700-foot-tall structure that is anchored by a precast concrete  foundation and stabilized by a stretched cable in the center of the  reservoir. The  tower, accessible through a pedestrian bridge, is formed from a densely  configured helix that integrates a vertical axis wind turbine to  provide electricity to filter the water. From the inside, visitors are surrounded by a steel core slope, urban landscape through the glue exoskeleton appears. At the top, a long observation platform provides panoramic views, while a pair of glasses shows the mechanics of the tower.

He  said: "It places where we think the boundaries that may exist in cities  are as dense, historically and environmentally fragile as ours." We are  guessing Jackie will be proud.
