José Quinhones, Portugal
The IGLO is an attractive shelter. If transparent and covered in edible plants, it´s a shelter juicy shelter. In the city of IGLO´s everything is useful, everything is transformed, nothing is lost. It is only necessary to make the collection of material on the streets and squares. Plants climb the outer surface, taking the sun and heat, and the interior remains cool.
The IGLO operates at two levels in the context of sustainability. On the one hand consists of recycled materials, reducing consumption and waste. On the other hand, promotes food independence, drama potential in existing cities, where people's lives is highly dependent on oil and large international companies.
