Tipping Wall, located at the cooling tower adjacent to the southern end of the hotel, features 7,000 mechanical polycarbonate tipping water channels on a large glass reinforced concrete wall about the size of a basketball court. Water running down the glass reinforced concrete wall splashes out and animates the white tipping channels, which are supported by stainless steel pins. As each channel fills with water, it tips left or right like a seesaw and spills water into either of the two channels below it. Water is recovered at the catchment area below the tippers and re-circulated to the distribution trough.
