Here is one of the several research projects that EcoLogicStudio is currently trying to develop.
Aqva Garden – Fuorisalone – Milan (ecoLogicStudio) AG is an artificial garden that functions as a distributed rain collector and as a water storage system. Unlike conventional recycling system AG doesn’t hide its functional apparatus; rather it embodies it in its structural matrix, the branching system. Moreover AG operates by expanding the climatic effects latent within the management of water and its transitional states (e.g. evaporation). Rain water becomes the protagonist of perceptual games and gardening processes, opening now potentials in the conception of ecologic infrastructures for the built environment.
