"Empathy Garden allotments / gardens in urban music, technology and environment."
What defines a city as it really eco-friendly? Prior to the design standards, technologies and market trends is necessary to understand that the urban revolution towards truly sustainable development goes through a new relationship with the environment. It is only through the development of a strong empathic bond, and feel that we can find ourselves in balance with nature.
