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.

However, the young trees planted along the length of the boulevard — which have been supplemented with new examples ecobluevar will take another fifteen or twenty years to give the desired degree of shade and moisture.
Passive cooling systems in the Yazd desert were so advanced that iced formed and accumulated during the cold winters could be conserved frozen until the height of vllecas long, hot, desertic summer.
December 11, Posted by: Although it was ecobulrvar to be completed in and is to be the site of 25, new homes, a considerable part of the Enscanche de Vallecas still offers the desolate landscape of an extensive, reticulated, developed but empty urban structure. Previous state Sincewhen it ceased to be an independent municipality on being annexed to the city of Madrid, Vallecas underwent a process of exponential growth valledas order to take in a great number of emigrants coming from the centre and south of Spain.
This tower is a hi-tech interpretation of traditional ones, its size is greatly increased the highest windtower in Iran is 33m high and many design details are engineered improvements of the original windwoter concepts.

Three such trees are deployed along the meters of the boulevard, with slightly different characteristics, to accommodate a different type of open endedness. Social Network Share Portlet Share. The cooling process is based on a combination of wind-catching, mechanical ventilation, and evaporative cooling.
In the upper part of the shaft a large fan is installed to generate an artificial windflow power is apparently generated by solar panels placed on the south side of the tower and under the fan two rings of nozzles are placed to implement passive evaporative cooling.
Although it was supposed to be completed in and is to be the site of 25, new homes, a considerable part of the Enscanche de Vallecas Vallecas Urban Extension still offers the bleak landscape of an extensive, reticulated, developed but empty urban structure. Ecovulevar the time required for the tree cover in the boulevard to achieve the desirable height and density has expired, the empty central space could resemble a forest clearing.

Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here 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. Approving or otherwise, the gaze of valelcas opinion has been drawn to the Enscanche de Vallecas, which has started to take on its dd specificity as a place on the map of Madrid.
Here follows the report of the jury regarding our work: 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. The peculiar structure of these materials offers the largest possible surface area to the vallfcas air which is then humidified and pushed into the ecobulevr or the room.

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 interesting 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.
Misting is instead widely used nowadays to lower temperatures both in buildings and open spaces. This is finished with continuous paving of recycled rubber and equipped valllecas benches. Las calles se forman como sombras de un reloj de sol, de forma radial. In this case a large square, just in front of the famouse Place de la Bourse, 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 mist cloud.
For six months the exhibition remained open and the engineers responsible for the vallscas design of the event collected data about the functioning and the performances of the design the report can be found in this book. 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.
Masdar Institute Courtyard showing the wind tower. The stakeholder list sort of makes clear how top down the project is. The external face of the cylinders consists of a sequence of sixteen vertical tubular pipes. 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.
As the organizers of the prize refer: This week we come with some good news in a row! Two main modifications were made: Detailed ground plan, axonometric projection and general plan of the project.
The unit is the Air Tree, which is an artificial object that simulates the natural environmental ecibulevar of real trees.
