CONCEPT
The two of the major challenges for those affected by natural flood disasters are finding clean drinking water and survival. The design concept aims to help those in need get clean water quickly and conveniently, and provide a temporary liferaft solution for people to stay waiting for rescue.

Based on some biomimicry principles. The "water bottle" structure is placed in car barriers. When the flood comes, it could rise with the rise of water, water goes into the bottle and is filtered. When it rises over 24 inches, the three temporary liferafts would automatically pomp out. A small family may be able to stay on the liferafts and get clean water while waiting for being rescued.
