Water Filtration through Play

(from LA Times)
Have you all seen this? This is innovation. Amazing. There is nothing better in this life than when brilliant minds use their power for good! Atopia Research, along with the Annenberg Foundation created this soccer field  (otherwise known as a pitch) which has used shipping containers underneath that will hold classrooms, health clinics, and community meeting rooms. The top is made of perforated polypropylene material allowing water to pass through and be filtered then collected in cisterns below. The architects predict that in areas which receive five inches of rain a year the soccer field will be able to capture, filter, and store over 2 million liters of water!
