'spiral garden system' by benet and saida dalmau, anna julibert and carmen vilar

'spiral garden system' by benet and saida dalmau, anna julibert and carmen vilar from spain
is one of the second prize winners of 'iida awards 2010', organized by designboom
in collaboration with incheon metropolitan city.

the light mesh structure is a spiraling green space which provides a place for urban gardening,
encourages social interaction between neighbours and serves as a place to lock up your bike.

designers' own words:
'we wanted to build a new environmentally-friendly town where the environment is considered
as an important part of everyday life. we propose 'spiral garden system': a public sustainable
place like a green heart, easy to maintain and self-sufficient, created by a joint population that
will stimulate social interaction among neighbours. a light, spiral structure protected by a
transparent and suggestive mesh, the project encourages the city to create sustainable exchange
spaces in different ways. this spiral contains an ascending garden where native vegetation can
coexist with urban orchards, shared and planted for the neighbours for easy maintenance and
serving also as a green outdoor walk. 'spiral garden system' increases social interaction between
people, provides a place for exchanging natural products, and becomes a way for local residents
to get involved with their neighbourhood. to sum up, we propose an ecological project in a way
to give sustainable change to daily city lives, where humans and nature can coexist.'
