Ecópolis Plaza

by ecosistema urbano

Ecópolis Plaza is conceived as a source of learning for citizens, educating on energy saving and optimization of natural resources. The project integrates ecology in everyday life, without turning it into an exceptional phenomenon more akin to a theme park or museum. In this project, the architecture is challenged beyond formal experimentation, to transform a vacant lot in the outskirts of Madrid into a space for social interaction. Ecópolis Plaza brings together on the same site a kindergarten, a ludic area for kids, and a public space. (source: ecosistema urbano’s website)
