Present Architecture Proposes a 'Green Loop' Network to Cllean up Waste Processing

Present Architecture Proposes a 'Green Loop' Network to Cllean up Waste Processing | tecnologia s sustentabilidade | Scoop.it

Large cities produce large amounts of trash and create a lot more to transport it to landfills. Looking at New York City as the site, local practice Present Architecture posits the ‘Green Loop’ as a solution to large scale waste management. 

Intended to be used as a network along the city’s waterfront, the floating energy production oasis has a street-level composting facility, elevated park, and barges and railways to efficiently transport the compost to other locations. Trash is then transported only a short distance to the borough’s Green Loop which offers more public space as it responsibly processes waste, tackling two pertinent urban issues simultaneously.

The master plan proposes the construction of 10 hubs around the 520 miles of coast in the city effectively alleviating congestion issues and dramatically lowers unnecessary energy waste while contributing 125 acres of public park land.

Maquete Eletrônica's insight:

..."laço verde" como uma solução para a gestão de resíduos em larga escala. destina a ser usado como uma rede ao longo da orla da cidade, o circuito verde é um oásis de produção de energia flutuante com uma facilidade ao nível da rua de compostagem, parque elevado, e barcaças e ferrovias para o transporte"......................

Ingenious Infrastructure: A Skatepark That Prevents Flooding

Ingenious Infrastructure: A Skatepark That Prevents Flooding | tecnologia s sustentabilidade | Scoop.it
This new development is an innovative way to approach the increase in precipitation brought on by climate change.


The drainage canal at Rabalder Park in Roskilde, Denmark, is probably the coolest drainage canal on the planet. The new development — part rainwater drainage system, part recreational skatepark — is an ingenious approach to solving the anticipated problem of increased rains brought about by climate change.

The design, which is a finalist for an Index Award, began as a standard drainage project; over the past few years, climate change has increased rainfall, leaving basements and streets flooded. The city needed to devise a way to separate rain and sewage water from the adjacent areas and brought in Dutch architecture firm Nordarch to transform a potential public infrastructure eyesore into a multi-functional recreation area.

 

Led by Søren Nordal Enevoldsen, a skateboarding-obsessed architect who has designed skateparks throughout the country, the Rabalder Park project has become a gathering place for both rainwater and skateboarding enthusiasts.
