Succulent House by Murmur

"Succulent House demands a systemic and structural reorganization of contemporary residential architecture. It explores possible solutions to water shortage issues and environmental consciousness  by treating the water collection capacities of houses as integral part of the design, instead of reducing it to a foreign body- an artificial addition to our, otherwise unburdened everyday lives. The large plastic curtains expand as they’re filled with water, enabling the whole process to be seen from the interior. Besides becoming a renewable energy source, this mechanism creates a continuous experience of sustainable action that is etched into the subconscious." via evolo.

I think this is a very interesting idea and would love to see the development of this- definitely an idea to explore. The water collection 'sacs' are also beautifully designed to become sculptural and the ever changing water capacity will create a fluent art form.
