Roof Irrigation Cooler

From the top of the roof, water is flowed.Heat of the roof is taken away.And then room temperature falls.Looking it out of windows is nice.

       Quite well-baked, I'm afraid.

       I like this idea quite a lot, and I've never heard it described before. Beauxeault: please provide a link if you can find one. Peter: I agree it's elegantly stated, but what does all-your-base mean?

       It's a reference to the 'translated-not-extremely-well-from-Japanese' feel of the syntax, taken from the 'Zero-Wing- video game. Search on 'all your base' for further info.
It's almost haiku-esque. I like it. Even though it's baked, I vote 'yay' for the prose.

       kaana, this would be surreal: as if rain were running from the eaves on a hot sunny day. Like the others, I enjoy the expressiveness of your idea. Am I correct in assuming that English is not your cradle language?   

       Nice first idea. Welcome to the Halfbakery!

       From the link, it seems to me that Californians do not pay the full economic cost of their water.

       Cute idea! If I build a house where I need a roof cooling, I will probably use the idea. Just because it looks so nice. It's so romantic... Probably I will also write somewhere on the roof:

       ever heard about passive architecture & evaporative cooling (more than fully baked concepts)?

       Rooftop waterfalls   

       Gently cool the summer heat.   

       Here! Have a croissant.

       In the 1998 Israel jubillee expo we were shown an invention of a greenhous that has water running on the roof and walls creating a virtual waterfall all day round. I was not able to find a trace of this idea since.

       Nice idea. One point: even if the water were recirculated, you'd lose quite a lot to evaporation.

       Evaporative cooling is how it works...

       The Shrine of the Book <link> has a water-jet (fountain) system which doubles as a cooling device.
