“Making precious pieces of the city’s history visible again”
Project description by jury
Located in a dry region in southern Iran, Bandar-e Kong receives 130 millimeters rain each year, concentrated over winter into intense rainfall that leads to episodes of severe flooding. This environmental criticality is exacerbated also by the lack of adequate agricultural infrastructure and green spaces in the city that could mitigate urban flood risks. To face these problems, this project suggests the restoration of an indigenous ecological system that would help the city mitigate stormwater runoffs and harvest rainwater for drinking and gardening purposes.
