Prague’s newest eco building and its impressive green roof

Prague’s newest eco building and its impressive green roof | Ciudades sostenibles | Scoop.it
A team of architects have designed a series of townhomes which are (wait for it...) inserted into an artificial hillside. You'll see from the photos that this make-believe hillside is covered by a unique carpet of grass.

The complex is located near the historic Prague city centre and is called the “Central Park Praha (Prague)”. The concept was designed by A96 Architects and AED Project. According to the architects, the residence will have its own 1.5-hectare park. It also happens to be right next to one of the largest parks in Prague, Parukáøka.

The layout of the complex was inspired by the natural environment, transforming its sharp features into a park through an artificial green embankment.

“The embankment is actually a terraced building with a green roof and façade. The compact green façade is used as the roof of two-storey townhouses interrupted by balcony frames playfully distorting the layout by connecting several smaller units into one larger unit...

Eco-Sustainable House With an Eye-catching Attic by Djuric Tardio Architectes

Eco-Sustainable House With an Eye-catching Attic by Djuric Tardio Architectes | Ciudades sostenibles | Scoop.it

This is possibly the most eco-friendly house on the market! The roof for example… its shaped like a pergola and has a specific function: on the one hand, it takes the archetype of the context, inserting the project in its environment without disrupting the urban rhythm, on the other hand, it won’t accommodate a closed roof that would become a catch-all attic or a wasted space. Another element I found interesting to mention is the structure of the walls… they illuminate the ground floor and they can be optionally removed, tomorrow perhaps working as railings and returning visual link between the two floors...

The Urban Farming Technique That Will Revolutionize the Way We Eat

The Urban Farming Technique That Will Revolutionize the Way We Eat | Ciudades sostenibles | Scoop.it

Aquaponics uses fish to create soil-less farms that can fit into cities much easier.


Urban farming today is no longer a hobby practiced by a few dedicated enthusiasts growing food for themselves. It has become a truly innovative field in which pioneering ventures are creating real, robust, and scalable solutions for growing food for large numbers of people directly at the point of consumption. This is great news not only for urban designers, architects, and building engineers, but also for residents and communities that want to increase food security and become more resilient to climate change.

Visit the article link for more information and details on the practice of aquaponics, natural resource efficiency and the potential for large-scale urban cultivation...

Anji Connell's curator insight, April 10, 2013 7:53 PM

'Rooftops present a great opportunity for farming; they are large, unexploited spaces within the city. Most commercial rooftops are also perfectly fit for the technical challenges, in terms of building physics, zoning laws, and system integration with the host building. A standard commercial rooftop in a Western city is about four times the size of our test farm, which means it could produce up to 20 tons of vegetables and four tons of fish — an annual harvest to feed 400. A significant part, if not the entire annual consumption, of fresh fish and vegetables for a building’s tenants could be served through its roof.'

What a great article, this is something that everyone should read. Make sure you read it all before showing your class, so you can answer any questions they have.

Its weird to think the world will be in another ten years time...What will they think of next?

AWESOME!!!
