The world is in a climatic crisis which has led to the water stress. The lack of the resource has affected many third world countries. The problem in most of the cases has been solved for quick results and not as a long term viable solution. This paper researches a system for harvesting water from local resources such as humidity by condensing the water particles to a liquid state. It develops an investigation on how architecture, through a construction component, can collect water off the grid for having in balance the offer and demand of the resource. It is mainly focus for facades and in terms of active and passive systems. In this approach, the morphology, materials and temperature exchange are directly related to the amount of water produced. The system component may be replicated and adapted to new facades and pre existing ones, it can be created locally and guarantee a reduction in water stress.
