MVRDV - Montecorvo Eco-City

Montecorvo Eco-City

This competition entry, by MVRDV with Spanish office GRAS is a masterplan for a sustainable city located just north of Logroño on the two small hills of Montecorvo and la Fonsalalda.  With the south facing hills providing optimal conditions for solar energy collection, as well as the tops perfect for windmills, the potential combined energy collection could fulfill the needs for all 3000 social housing units on the plan. By producing its own energy, this new neighbourhood achieves a carbon neutral footprint.
