ProdActive Landscapes

What’s ProdActive Landscapes for? The ecological emergency and the global energy crisis are driving us to rethink architectural design in terms of optimization of local resources, reduction of water and energy requirements, and integration of technologies producing energy from renewable sources. Sustainability issues have already been transforming building’s function from places to live to multifunctional systems integrating energy production and, always more frequently, food production, including roof top or hydroponic indoor agriculture. The ProdActive Landscapes

Peer 2 Peer project development : Food Lab + OKNO + SONY CSL

As an initiating workshop at the Green Fab Lab, it was inspiring to be able to host and a number of collaborating European groups for a symposium of ideas sharing, project development and seminars. OpenGreens, by the artist collective OKNO in Brussels, is the ancestor of the P2P Food Lab project. The OpenGreens wiki and the related Time Inventors Kabinet is full of resources relating to urban food, monitoring systems, and more. It is a major repository for anyone interested in urban

Open Source Beehives : Citizen Science tracking Bee decline

The Open Source Beehives project is a network of citizen scientists tracking bee decline. We use sensor enhanced beehives and data science to study honeybee colonies throughout the world. All of our technology and methods, from the hive and sensor kit designs to the data, are documented and made openly available for anyone to use. The primary goal is to determine the cause(s) of bee decline, to identify potential solutions, and to encourage networks of concerned citizens

Flone Drone : Technology for Conservation and Community

Drone Tech for Community Participation in Conservation, Agriculture, and Advocacy Community groups and interested individuals learnt how to build and fly their own drones in a recent weekend workshop at the Valldaura Green Labs site in the forested foothills just above Barcelona. Together with Lot Amoros and Alexandre Oliver of  Flone-Drone we learnt to build a drone, soldering all the parts together, and conquered the coordination of piloting our tech. Putting drone technology in the
