Minnaert Building in Utrecht by Neutelings Riedijk Architecten

Rainwater pours through the roof of the Minnaert Building on the Uithof campus extension of the University of Utrecht to cascade noisily into a 150 by 30 foot basin filling half the building's cavernous central hall. This is on the second floor main circulation level, at which the building is connected by bridges to its neighbors. The water in the pool feeds a circulatory system by which the temperatures are controlled throughout the building, which houses facilities for three departments, including that of geophysics, and a restaurant serving the entire northwestern corner of the campus.
