From the Architects:

A catastrophe occurs when the balance of a phenomenon is broken. This can happen either because a new external force causes a large perturbation in a stable system, or because, in a situation of unstable equilibrium a very small force produces a great effect. The different types of catastrophe could be formally reduced to a relative small range of geometric forms. And many of those forms could be represented by a falling raindrop process. Every deformation of the water surface is a sort of natural micro-disaster: this Disaster Prevention and Education Centre shows the events that involves earth, air and water in a friendly manner enclosed by a public ETFE greenhouse, where all the inhabitants can found harmony with nature, under the shade of the trees.
