Environmental and sustainable benefits

  • Sustainable stormwater management
  • Increased biodiversity
  • Increased biomass
  • Heat island mitigation

A complete overhaul of the pedestrian spaces, drop-off areas and access to the Civilisation Museum was designed in continuity with the existing urban context. A major boulevard such as this one provides an exceptional exposure for innovative design and technical ideas.

This urban design integrates planting techniques and Best Management Practices in stormwater management in an elegant and efficient way.
