GEOtube is a new kind of tower. Sprayed with adjacent Persian Gulf waters, its building skin is entirely grown rather than constructed; is in continual formation rather than fully completed; and is created locally rather than imported from afar. As the water evaporates and salt mineral deposits aggregate over time, the tower’s appearance transforms from a transparent veil to a vibrant white vertical plane.
Salt crystals produce air saturated with healthy negative ions. In contrast, pollution produces large quantities of positive ions cre- ating an unhealthy electrical imbalance in the air. The concen- tration of negative ions is naturally higher around waterfalls and by the ocean; when water droplets are dispersed, an electrical charge is created. Research has proven the therapeutic values of salt caves and their positive influence in the treatment of respiratory diseases.
