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.

By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. You bet on the generation of public spaces using noninvasive techniques without generating waste or consume large amounts of energy and budget. David Bravo Bordas, architect. A great example, found in Yazd, combines and refines even more these two methods placing the tower further than usual from the ecobulevaf 50 m and then using an underground tunnel ecobulwvar connect the tower with the house.

Even though the Air Trees are prominent objects, it is their use of evaporative cooling strategies and shading, that impacts the livability of the neighborhood. September 26, Posted by: However, the young trees ecobulevr along the length of the boulevard — which have been supplemented with new examples — will take another fifteen or twenty years to give the desired degree of shade and moisture.

Each one of the three trees has different characteristics and each one is focused on a different aspect of public space, but in this case the most ecohulevar is the northernmost one that was designed as a rack of twelve evaporative cooling towers grouped to form a semi-enclosed public space shaded and cooled by the bioclimatic tree.

Three pavilions or artificial trees serve as support for multiple activities. Detailed ground plan, axonometric projection and general plan of the project.

Swing under one of the pavilions. Each of these cylinders works as you would a tree: The 45m teflon sleek tube is naturally designed to offer the smallest possible resistance to the passage of the wind and to reduce the possibility of condensation to the nebulized water used for passive cooling.

Climatic Tree ecobulevsr the Vallecas Ecobupevar, Madrid New technologies work to break down barriers which traditionally inhibited the full participation of community. 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.

Fog Assembly, Olafur Eliasson, Versailles 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. September 3, Posted by: 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.

Even if water vaporization is widely used in many terraces, bars, public venues, etc. The design of an evaporative tower able to work properly is challenging, a single design flaw or dysfunction can cause the sprayed water to condensate an drip.

The tunnel, being underground benefits both from the earth thermal inertia and from the humidity of the soil and at the end of the tunnel a fountain is vallrcas to cool down even more the air. This was obviously a major flaw and the towers functioned only partially, also due to the difficult maintenance of the water nozzles. In order to do so, windcatchers have to work together with a water source that supplies water which is then evaporated cooling down the flowing air, this can be achieved in many ways.

You can find more about the project on the www.

Moreover, these flags help purify up to 11 tons of gaseous pollutants, and consume only what he is capable of producing through systems of photovoltaic solar energy collection. The third, and more advanced, passive cooling system based on windcatchers benefits from an underground water stream to cool down the water.


The playful design is enhanced by a clever usage of the bottom part of ds tower, a se ceramic brickwork is used to enclose a relatively generous meeting place that can host dozens of people from the local community, to reduce solar gain on the habitable part of the tower a sun protection is installed around it permanently shadowing the ventilating part. They contain rooting vegetation and atomizers that cool and moisten the air in the cylinder and around it 8oC to 10oC cooler than the rest of the street in summer.

Vallwcas understand the quality of this translation eclbulevar not excellent and we are working to replace these with high quality human translations. 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 is working as an air intake the evaporation of the thin superficial layer of water will cool down the downward incoming stream of air.

Here is a short video about the methodology Dream Your City we used in the dreamhamar project in Norway:. This week we come with some good news in a row! The stakeholder list sort of makes clear how top down the project is. Doiztua Partially constructed of recycled materials, each of these ephemeral, light and dismountable devices presents a cylindrical structure around a large empty space in the centre.
