| J2J working towards new productive spaces for local food production |
Covid-19, ecological disasters, food scarcity, water problems, CO2 emissions, you name it. We’ve been interested since long ago on how to create what we call “Productive spaces”, searching how can space be used to produce instead of consume (being producing food, energy, water or simply creating spatial flexibility). We must re-think the way our buildings respond to people’s real needs and to the environment.

| Hydroponic green facade underway |
Sports Facility building CEM Turó de la Peira, Nou Barris, Barcelona
Acting as a second skin- as a bioclimatic filter- the South-east facing hydroponic green facade will reduce the Summer direct radiation and save on water use, producing a micro-climate and becoming a source for biodiversity
The NE and NW facades will also integrate specific green species according to their orientation, so that the building mimetize and becomes part of the new public garden next to the facility.
