Research groups: Bioe


The goal of the project IISIS assimilates the latest architectural trends based on biomimicry to give a step in the challenge of building sustainable environments. A strict balance with ecological conservation, sustainability and sustainable energy and resources is maintained in any moment. On this purpose the project will employ marine renewables especially designed for use on the island, complete water treatment and waste control designed to fulfil the goal of zero discharge, improve performance and optimize the operation of the island through a combination of new bioclimatic configurations adapted to local conditions produced in the marine environment where they take place.
