Visualisation of the Water Tower Construction Steps

Using several historic photographs, I created this animation that depicts the stages of the construction of the Kuwait Water Towers. The animation aims to shed light on the beauty of the raw, initial stages of the towers’ construction, exposing the towers’ skeletal structure and its unrefined “truth”(for lack of a better term). It’s as if the viewer is seeing an x-ray of the towers.
