Additionally, we developed structural systems that protect fragile coastline ecosystems without destroying native mangrove forests while suppling all energy, water and most materials locally and sustainably from the dig out and excavations. The ecosystem design included on-site safe sustainable water and temperature exchange with the gulf through water canals. After solar driven desalination, all potable water is delivered through the canal system and grey water and black water are both recycled into plant based bio-remediation systems and community gardens.

Yale CEA principals worked closely with SOM LLP and Buro Happold consulting engineers to develop a multi scale environmental and ecological strategy with novel eco-ceramic materials, vegetation systems and large scale heat exchange through evaporative water pools that produced a comfortable micro climate for Aerospace City.
