This shortlisted proposal for urban student-work display aimed to pause a moment in the journey between warehouse and distribution to highlight the sheer effort involved in transporting and distributing a literal ton of water.

The assemblies are composed of ubiquitous industrial materials: wood pallets, thermally insulating pallet quilts, and nylon strapping.
