A green bridge is a green infrastructure playing as nature corridors for wildlife crossing. Landscape Node is a project by Alberto Ferrero de la Vaga, which provides a green bridge to connect 3 natural areas with a residential peripheral neighborhood in Madrid.
Sustainability is considered principal in all its concepts, and its architectural details. Ferrero developed an algorithm in Grasshopper that performed a sunlight analysis, a detailed wind exposure analysis of each point on the hill, and an analysis of the impact of highway emissions on the upper garden. These three cross-analyses gave a matrix of points. Then, by using the plant database of Lands Design, the adequate plants got selected automatically.
Thanks to the Lands Design components in Grasshopper, the adequate plant species were immediately placed in the optimal spot on the hill. The whole design process, plans and documentations were done in Rhino by using Lands Design documentation tools.
Take a look at the project here.
