Almería greenhouses inspire The Greendomo Project to develop urban, sustainable agriculture.
What was once a desert in Almería in southeast Spain is now a sea of greenhouses – and the orchard of Europe. This has inspired a group of pioneering companies to develop The Greendomo Project in a bid to build similar greenhouses that can be used in a variety of outdoor spaces including parks and other green spaces, terraces, or even the attics of urban buildings.
Juan Pardo, Technical Director of the Greendomo Project, explains the philosophy behind the structure:
“The Greendomo greenhouse is shaped like a globe, a geodesic dome. It’s a structure made up of triangles, which is the simplest geometric shape that exists.
“Their consumption of energy and use of materials is kept to a minimum, so that there are no structural obstacles to the absorption of solar radiation for the plants, so that they can photosynthesise.
Greendomo looks set to play a big part in urban agriculture in the future.
That could help make a huge contribution to food security and could transform the everyday lives of city dwellers across the world.
