Whitepod: winter paradise in an eco-tourism concept

If there could exist a name for winter paradise, then Whitepod would undoubtedly be the perfect candidate. A resort located at 1400, in a private ski area in Switzerland, at the foot of the “Dents-du-Midi”, Whitepod was awarded with the World Prize for Sustainable Tourism in 2005.

Consisting of 15 luxurious and spacious ( 40 sq.m each) domes or else pods, this original concept offers a unique and unforgettable experience in a beautiful mountain environment, away from all urban nuisances.

O’Donnell Garden: Style and Recycling

The garden is located in the place of demolished cellars of the Madrid Regional Health Service’s Old Building. The area of the garden is 11060 sq. ft. Not only is the place beautiful in both style and form, this public garden is a fine example of recycling.

Almost everything is reused here: the crushed recycled concrete was used instead of the gravel under the reinforced concrete; recycled glass mixed with resin was used to prevent slippery and give the peculiar shininess to the walking surfaces under the sun; crushed parts of demolished roads are used as the dark drainage gravel.
