Glasgow Makes Rain

Group 26: Chloe Spiess, Craig Stephens, Ingrid Wennemo, Karlis Kukainis, Cheuk Ming Le, Zachary Macpherson

We have chosen to reimagine one of Glasgows largest water sources – the rain. As the climate crisis is deepening, clean water is becoming an increasingly valuable commodity. The City of Glasgow starts using cloud seeding and rain collection technologies, and transport to areas that are in need of water. Planes disperse silver iodide particles that condense the clouds and make the air particles heavy enough to fall. This controlled summoning of clouds creates rain that is collected through the rain collection system above the city. This will allow Glasgow to prosper – becoming a centre for the new hydro-age, regaining its status as a city of engineering. In the future people make Glasgow and Glasgow makes rain.
