Aquagarden is an artificial garden that functions as a rain water distribution and collection system. Unlike conventional recycling systems, AG doesn’t hide its functional apparatus, rather it embodies it in its structured matrix, the branching system. Moreover AG operates as a cooling system through the evaporation of the trickling water. Rain water becomes the protagonist of the perceptual games, opening new potentials in the conception of ecologic infrastructures for the built environment.
