Water is drawn from the phreatic level and passes under the organic paving blocks, which it cools. Experimental pavers using mollusk shells as aggregates.
Urban pavements can be considered the main element of connection between the citizen and his environment. It is the external and visible part of their skin, the epidermis, on which all the activity of the city rests and develops, shaping and influencing the quality of the space. Urban pavements must allow the use and use of the outdoor public space in complete safety and comfort for the citizen in different climatic conditions. In Nice, a warm Mediterranean city, it achieves an appreciable reduction in temperature for pedestrians. Developed for Nice Grand Arenas Urban planning project by mateoarquitectura.
