Street Bio-Corner
A street bio-corner which adds new bio-functionalities to the existing ones, through the provision of a sustainable drainage system and an off-grid performance.
These brand-new street bio-corners will evolve from some of the existing street corners in Arrecife, standing out amid the arid landscape, and consisting of a big tree, a shaded area and seating.

Street bio-corners are a contemporary version of the existing ones, adding new bio-functionalities, such as a local drainage system, clean energy, digital information, and biodiversity. Besides trees, gardens and places for people to meet up and relax, these spaces will include a sustainable drainage system for the harvesting, filtering and storage of rainwater, as in old times in Lanzarote, when water was a valued and scarce resource.

Each street bio-corner works as a hydraulic infrastructure, in addition to being a public space, with Wi-Fi connection and an off-grid energy system. Our aim is that these corners will encourage people of different ages to come together, as well as making the city eco-friendly. The design consists of an assemblage of triangular modules, and has multiple and varying usages, such as being a garden, a playground, a place to play chess with tables, an orchard, a butterfly garden, a location for barbeques, a platform for yoga, as well as having steps to sit on.

There is a plan to develop about forty street bio-corners around the city, all of them in collaboration with people living in nearby neighbourhoods. .
