Water Harvesting Skyscrapers

In 2007 scientists from the Boston University discovered that the drought stricken land of Darfur has one of the largest underwater lakes on the planet. This underground treasure is approximately 19,110 square miles and Polish firm H3AR designed these water harvesting skyscrapers to extract the water to create an artificial lake. The 'geek' inside me reminded me of the Moisture Farms in Star Wars Episode IV. Don't call Uncle Ben and Luke Skywalker just yet, this design is still a concept.
