PROJECT SUMMARY

The mysterious story of the garden that makes water

This project for a public garden in Spain is merited for making a beneficial contribution to a characteristically dry region. The scheme makes the most of the existing qualities of the site in order to maximize water retention.

Also commended is the proposal for time phasing. Whereas priority is given to water recycling, careful guidelines are provided for gradual development of the park. This ensures that no resources are wasted.
