Forest fires continue to claim thousands of acres of land across the Amazon rainforest, which is why a group of Chines designers have come up with “The Rainforest Guardian Skyscraper” to help combat the issue.

Designers Jie Huang, Giaowan Tang, Jin Wei, Zhe Hao, Yiwei Yu came up with the idea of a skyscraper with a circular, flat top that could collect and distribute rainwater on command during different seasons.

Long pipes hang down from the top of the skyscraper and contribute to how the structure collects water which is either by collecting rain that falls from the sky or extracting excess water from the ground.

The skyscraper features reservoirs for water storage after it has been filtered and also drone-like aircrafts with water tanks and spray capabilities that can be deployed at any time in the case of a fiery emergency.
