El Bulevar de la Naturaleza en el Ensanche de Vallecas
The Boulevard of Nature in the Ensanche de Vallecas is a wide route of more than a kilometer in length, framed by blocks of modern buildings, of different typology and of great color. Along the boulevard we find three metallic structures of great visual impact. The so-called Air Trees are an innovative urban design experience. Partially constructed with materials of recycled origin, each of these ephemeral, lightweight and removable devices has a cylindrical structure that surrounds a large central vacuum. At the base of each structure we find planters with climbing plants that cover the inner wall of the central courtyard.
