Project Description

The project evaluates the evolution of the energy landscapes over the centuries and its great
influence on evolution of cities and their growing impact on the enviroment, the loss of energy
in an open system which allows transportation from far away production locations, and
proposes, after an analysis of the city and a detailed study of consumption, sunlight and
production possibilities, a small infrastructure-building to produce electricity, food and heat in
a clean and sustainable way. The electricity produced by high-efficiency photovoltaic panels
will be used to provide housing, shops and a charging station for electric bicycles and electric
cars to enhance clean mobility. Each tower has four floors to generate small urban gardens in
elevated trays as a productive landscape for senior citizens, unemployed, youth, schools and
other associations. From these small urban gardens, small local markets can be created and
evolve into a whole network of markets.
In total, the project plans to place 24 towers in the city of Sabadell, mainly on roundabouts,
pedestrian areas and major service areas, promoting equitable access to energy and urban
gardens and encouraging energy development in the city equitably. This implementation
could produce electricity exclusively to supply the annual consumption of 400 households.
