Purpose The objective of the Eco-boulevard is two fold: one of a social nature, aimed to generate activity, and one of an environmental nature. En la exposición podrás encontrar dos obras de Ecosistema urbano, el Ecobulevar de Vallecas, un espacio público bioclimáticamente acondicionado creado. The project, together with the Ecobulevar de Vallecas (which was awarded back in ) is now part of the Best Practices Database “as a way.

A tubular sphere was placed in the middle of one of the most important boulevards of the exhibition rounded by fountains and water basins as a part of the bioclimatic design of the open space of the exhibition. We propose the construction of three large cylinders aligned, forming ee fun ride, that anger mixed with the urban landscape of desolate desert suburb of Madrid. The Prize acknowledges valelcas that is considered emerging in the professional and public consciousness.

Fog Assembly, Olafur Eliasson, Versailles Can design prevent disaster? This is finished with continuous paving vallecaz recycled rubber and equipped with vallevas. January 19, Posted by: In the first case, where tall gushes are produced, water evaporation is limited and the playful atmosphere dominates the large plaza, but when short mist clouds are produced the evaporation rate of the water is greatly increased and a cooling effect is produced, although in Bordeaux climate conditions are quite mild, and hot days are limited to few occasions during summer the square is very popular.

Compared to the Masdar windtower this one might have a major flaw, in both the Ecobulevar and Masdar the proper cooling shaft is always protected from the direct sunlight, in this case instead the shaft is thermally conductive and prone to overheating.

At the base of each pavilion, there is a cool, accessible circular space protected from the prevailing winds by a rammed-earth dune around the perimeter. For six months the exhibition remained open and the engineers responsible for the bioclimatic design of the event collected data about the functioning and the performances of the design the report can be found in this book. The unit is the Air Tree, which is an artificial object that simulates the natural environmental contidions of real trees.

The sustainability aspects are seen in several aspects: Doiztua Concert under one of the pavilions. September 7, Posted by: Answers come from different practicioners among the winners.

The third, and more advanced, passive cooling system based on windcatchers benefits from an underground water dr to cool down the water. Image courtesy of Philippe Rahm. As down inside the duct, warm air passes through a cloud of water spray produced by climbing plants, which moistens and cools.

To increase even more the cooling potential a ring of water nozzles, also computer controlled, is placed right at the top of the shaft transforming this tower in a evaporative cooling device. The facing wall of the cylinder is vallecax by a sequence of sixteen vertical tubular conduits. Here follows the report of the jury regarding our work: The ecobulevar, being a fully designed public space, can count on many other design characteristics that improve the overall functioning of the cooling towers, their efficiency and the energetic behavior.

The Eco-boulevard is an emergency intervention into one such suburb, where an artificial and ecoulevar nature is inserted, as a support infrastructure for culture and public life. Aerial view before the intervention.

District, Neighborhood, Urban Room diagrams District development, into a suburban desert. Vaporizing water coming from the floor is a quite common and ecobulevsr mean to condition large open spaces, the effect that everybody has noticed of a ecobulefar refreshment when passing by a fountain in a square or, even more, while staying close to a waterfall is due to the very same thermodynamic principle, the small drops of water that the are created when water breaks while falling to the ecobupevar or splashing into more water dramatically increase the surface-area-to-volume ratio favoring a faster evaporationthe nebulized microscopic drops evaporate instantly causing a sudden temperature drop that can be magnified by the wind or other design inventions.

Here is a short video about the methodology Dream Your City we used in the dreamhamar project in Norway:.

Ecobulevar in Vallecas, Madrid, Spain | Public Use of Private Space

Each month a new topic is adressed through a new open question. In this case a large square, just in front of the famouse Place de la Valleccas, is designed to be a large water mirror where hundreds of water nozzles spray water from the floor either in the form of a fountain or of a vallecax cloud. The design of these spaces has to be developed with special care, the effectiveness of the strategies used in Seville for example varied much depending on the surrounding conditions, evaporative cooling could be very effective if combined with the right design of protective and shading elements, with a correct sun and wind exposure and material use but could be also nullified simply by not considering the wind variation.


Ser low costteniendo en cuenta el bajo presupuesto disponible. The stakeholder list sort of makes clear how top down the project is. Should designers be outlaws? Image courtesy of A.


The pavilions are constructed on metal scaffolding that provides support for five superimposed polygonal walkways. Detailed ground plan, axonometric projection and general plan of the project.

What is the Social Design Cirle? The Spanish submissions to this award have been highly appreciated: The project takes place in one of the many poorly planned new suburbs that are springing up around the city of Madrid. Email required Address never made public. The speed at which they come to be does not allow for an according development of culture and social life.

Today, when it consists of two districts that bring together a series of markedly working-class neighbourhoods, it is once again a reception zone for a second wave of immigrants coming from all around the world, with which it continues its process of vigorous expansion in a direction southeast of the capital.

Montalegre, 5 – Barcelona Tel. The proposal raised the conditioning bioclimatic main boulevard in the Eixample UE. Presiding over this is the large central empty space of the cylinder, lined with the foliage of the climbing plants and covered with translucent sheeting which protects it from the sun. Image before Image after. Actually the most important issue is the control of the water flow and pressure as it has to be correctly regulated depending on the actual dry-bulb and wet-bulb temperature, relative humidity etc.

However, the young trees planted along the length of the boulevard will take another fifteen or twenty years to give the desired degree of shade and moisture. This design is constituted only by a vertical metal chimney topped by a fixed wind catcher oriented towards the prevailing wind.

In addition to sensible cooling, the cooling caused by a change of air temperature but not its humidity, badgir combined with a savvy use of water can provide also evaporative cooling which is generally more effective than sensible cooling alone.
