Water droplet resort creates H2O out of thin air

This is one watery resort. Besides its water droplet shape, it extracts water from the air using solar power, and a large part of it is built underwater, functioning as a huge aquarium. In addition to its luxury hotel rooms, the plan is to build restaurants, convention space, gyms, conference rooms and spas on its upper floors.

We think Spanish architect Orlando De Urrutia is onto something here. People love to be near water when they're on vacation, so this might be the ideal recreation destination. Wouldn't be bad to work there, either — could this be a suitable design for a future DVICE headquarters?
