On long journeys through Central and Western Europe and the United States, Bernd and Hilla Becher have collected a wealth of examples of the industrial building type water towers since 1957. Although water towers are so-called functional buildings that occupy a clearly subordinate position in the hierarchy of architectural art, the examples photographed by the Bechers between the turn of the century and today reveal an unprecedented diversity of forms that reflect national styles and local traditions as well as the imagination, temperament and innovative spirit of their builders.
