Climate change represents a number of challenges that can have serious impacts on social and natural systems. One of the most vulnerable systems are cities and their inhabitants. A major problem is a large number of paved surfaces and the lack of quality green and water surfaces at the same time.

In the Climate Architecture lab, we are researching and implementing measures that mitigate the vulnerability of cities and it's population.  

We are currently developing a series of prototypes that indicate possible directions for future applications.

Prototype

City Cell Prototype was designed for testing several principles, such as various greenery types or collecting and filtering rainwater. These techniques should help cities to adapt to climate change.

City Cell Prototype was designed for testing several principles, such as various greenery types or collecting and filtering the rainwater. These techniques should help the cities to adapt to climate change.

The prototype is based on biofilter technology that filters rainwater from the roof. The structure also tests vertical placement of greenery on construction using custom designed planters, which are irrigated with biofiltered rainwater from the roof. 

The whole object is conceived as an independent system and is thus energy self-sufficient. The first prototype has been installed at Malinovského square in the city center of Brno.
