OASIS: Multimodal Hydroactive System - Green roofing for biodiversity and urban planning
OASIS is a multifunctional and hydroactive green roof for greening urban buildings.
Unlike conventional green roofs, OASIS is a stormwater management tool. Urban damage related to rain runoff is avoided, flood risks are reduced and discharges to the natural environment in rainy weather are limited. In addition to an enlarged vegetal choice and urban farming, OASIS adds value to the stored water. For example, plants are irrigated twice with the same water thanks to capillarity. OASIS can be considered an urban planning device since it reintroduces nature and biodiversity into the city while driving urban building costs down. Absorption of rain peaks means OASIS maintains a low and constant run-off rate not affected by intense rainfalls.
