The Environmental Technology Centre (ETC) is situated in the former Valdedomingómez landfill site which has now been restored and transformed into a public forest park as part of the Southeast Madrid Regional Park Restoration Project. It is a visible restored access point and a meeting place in which environmentally relevant activities can be carried out. These range from courses, seminars and conferences to various types of exhibitions.

Green Health City is an ecologically sustainable development designed to support and promote the condition of physical and emotional human health. Situated in China’s Hainan Province in Boao Lecheng on the Wanquan River, five island districts bring together world-class medical facilities, employ new strategies for green energy production and rethink transportation networking to achieve a sustainable urban prototype. Pathways toward a sustainable future are forged through strong ties to local identity and respect for history. By establishing a cross-disciplinary and inter-cultural approach to design that is routed in China’s long history, a comprehensive and well considered scheme is achieved.

Facing a scientific, technical, environmental, human, symbolic and geo-political challenge, a simple and efficient strategy that could respond to all needs and goals should be developed. It needed a principle that integrates security (fire protection first), flexibility and modularity and that could provide comfort, thermal or acoustic, but, above all, quality of life for users.

Wendy does not play the typical architecture game of ecological apology – instead she is pro-active. That is why Wendy is composed of PVC mesh treated with a ground breaking titania nanoparticle spray to neutralize airborne pollutants. During the summer of 2012 Wendy will clean the air to an equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road.

Proposed by Ramirez-Gonzalez Studio architecture firm, the ECO-Sport Facility is a novel design, which accomplishes the re-engineering of the typical basketball court architecture in Puerto Rico into a sustainable building. The concept was based on the firm’s own philosophy by conceiving ‘Architecture as an Adapted Product’ which permits the project architects to improve the structure environmental output within cost-efficiency parameters from early stages of the design development.

The new project has been realized in a neighborhood, Antony, that is an example of the belief that architecture, whether heterogeneous and homogeneous, is shaped by outdated zoning regulations. The delays in securing permits, along with conditions of the urban situation and our desire to continue and refine our own research on wood constructions, led us to propose a type of construction system. This type is still not released in urban areas and rather reserved for detached houses in less dense sites. The urban rules and the site context, which is very typical, have suggested the template, which has proved a real asset to the project.

The whole proposal for the eco-boulevard in Vallecas can be defined as an urban recycling operation consisting of the following actions: insertion of an air tree-social dynamizer, over an existing urbanization area, densification of existing alignment trees and reduction and asymmetric arrangement of wheeled traffic circulation. Superficial interventions reconfiguring the existing urbanization (perforations, fillings, paint, etc.) that defaces the executed kerb development.
