Client: ARPEGIO
Date: 2008/2009
Status: Design Development
Program: Creating a natural area of recreation and a natural system for stormwater treatment.
Scope: Urban strategy and design.

The Rain Water park is a landscape that reuses and recycles the rainwater collected in the neighboring industrial development. A system of macrophytes is incorporated into the design, aiming to become an “open environmental classroom or experience” to promote sustainability among visitors as a way of raising awareness about natural resources.

The water management system includes the natural water purification system and the stormwater management, creating a green space and an ecosystem.

This solution can be understood as an exportable model in which water is managed and reused near to the point of origin, and becomes a resource instead of being wasted.
