[NBS Card] Food and leisure
The Food Production and Leisure Pavilion is a facility for public and private open spaces that includes both cultivation and leisure areas. The pavilion is designed according to local conditions in order to optimize shading areas and to maximize the solar exposition of the plants both in summer and winter periods. In cold climates the pavilion can be complemented by a protective skin to maintain optimum temperature needed for the growth of the plants and for users’ comfort. Vegetables cultivation can be organized in soil or with hydroponic systems, allowing water savings in dry environments. Compared to traditional green houses, the plantation area is higher since it also includes the surface area of the structure.
