  5. 5. Couryard Plan: Water Circulation in Section: BRIDGING: The hotel and apartment buildings are connected by a series of 3 bridges that alternated every other floor, staring at the second floor. They allow one to travel to the rooftop pool and experience the gardens that rest on top of the two atriums COURTYARD WATER CATCHING SYSTEM: The courtyard is not only full of angular detail that mimicks the bridges above, but is a recycling system for catching rainwater. There are channels embedded in the grassy areas that connect the outer pools to the inner pools by being at a slight angle. The grey water is then held in a tank undein a tank underground. This keeps the courtyard from flooding in a climate like Mobile, AL.
