Environmental challenges are becoming increasingly urgent, highlighting the need to find sustainable solutions.

The continuous population growth and subsequent habitat degradation, coupled with issues like pollution, diminishing green spaces, and excessive expansion of massive constructions, represent just some of the critical challenges modern cities face.

Protecting our environment becomes more imperative than ever. It’s essential to adopt daily habits that promote sustainability and respect for the world we inhabit.

Green is the principal colour of the world, from which its beauty arises. Pedro Calderón de la Barca.

The path towards a more sustainable lifestyle begins with small actions, such as reducing water and energy wastage, turning off unnecessary electrical devices, and opting for more eco-friendly transportation. These crucial steps are the foundation for building a more sustainable and conscientious future, where every action counts and contributes to caring for the planet.

 

A Growing Emphasis on Sustainable Construction

The construction sector is responsible for 40% of CO2 emissions, 30% of raw material consumption, 20% of water usage, 30% of waste generation, and a significant portion of land occupation, as outlined in a report by Ihobe, illustrating the environmental impact of a key driver in any economy.

One of the significant aims of architecture is to reduce the impact of construction on the environment. Technological advancements and improvements in construction systems have positive effects not only on the surroundings but also on human well-being in its broadest sense: both physically and emotionally.

 

More Habitable and Suitable Environments

The implementation of indoor living walls and green walls is part of this shift towards more sustainable building models.

Indoor living walls positively impact the improvement of indoor air quality by capturing CO2 and VOCs while providing relative humidity through evapotranspiration. Moreover, they enable a connection with nature, positively impacting the mental and physical health of individuals.

At Terapia Urbana, our multidisciplinary team comprising Agricultural Engineers, Architects, Landscape Designers, and Specialists in Sustainable Architecture, Phytotechnology, Sustainable Landscaping, and Hydraulic Engineering, is dedicated to collaborating with you on each project, seeking to implement green structures that minimize the environmental impact of construction in urban settings.
