RAIN WATER PARK

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 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.
