Bocage urbain is a modular landscape design that proposes an alternative management of rainwater by creating a synergy between water and vegetation in the heart of the public space.
RAIN, A CHALLENGE FOR OUR TERRITORIES
While climate change is generating increases in rainfall in our temperate regions, the increasing urbanisation of our cities is reducing their natural infiltration capacities. 72.5% of French municipalities have already been confronted with at least one runoff flood. Faced with this situation, elected officials must now implement solutions to remedy flooding.
HOW TO REDUCE WATER CONGESTION IN CITIES?
The bocage landscape is a very efficient hydraulic system in the countryside. Adapting it to the urban environment is an opportunity to manage runoff water on a large scale while developing the territory in an aesthetic and ecological way.
