Aigües de Barcelona has acquired the IP of the project, tutored by Professor Xavier Tutó and nominated for the Awards ei! 2017. Its objective: to create links between green areas of the Catalan capital, taking as a starting point the vegetation of urban elements of the Aigües de Barcelona network.
Green cities and urban elements
The 'Nodes Verds' project emerges from the challenge launched by Aigües de Barcelona to ELISAVA on how to put the urban elements of Barcelona at the service of the renaturalization of the city. The project also looks for citizen awareness on this topic.
The technical solution consists of a system of vegetation of water sample cabinets. The system is composed of a vertical vertical panel with anchors to be fixed to the floor, a connection box that facilitates the proper operation of the system and an outer covering that allows the passage of the plants to protect the assembly. The panel takes advantage of the sampling water, once analyzed, to water the plants chosen specifically for this purpose.
