The first one is taking advantage of the of the basement damp walls of the windcacher itself, if there is enough humidity in the underground the basement walls will be constantly wet and when the wind tower ecobulebar working as an air intake the evaporation of the thin superficial layer of water will cool down the downward incoming stream of air.

In the Sevilla EXPO this effect was widely used, large fountains and water basins were placed all around the EXPO along all the main paths and squares to increment climatic comfort, in some areas even vertical walls of water were designed to expose the visitors vsllecas an even more effective cooling device, but the most common strategy was the use of conventional fountains and mist nozzles integrated xe the many green shading roofs.
