The combination of climate change and massive urbanization makes city ecosystems vulnerable. Faced with this reality, bioclimatic architecture and regenerative planning provide a wealth of tools that include urban agriculture, which is increasingly widespread in the context of growing green value in the real estate sector.

Bechu & Associés is an architectural practice that embraces this movement, working with its partners to design parametric modeling tools to improve the sustainability of architectural and urban planning projects. In this process, bio-inspiration plays a key role, by leveraging nature’s solutions to design places where climate and culture combine, and where nature repairs the ties that bind cities to the countryside.
