Hydrological cluster is the new typology of scientific-educational complexes dedicated to one of the global problem – water sources depletion and world ocean water level changing.
Biomimicry is considered as one of the modern ways of response to global environmental problems.
The card of innovative biomimetic elements, which mimic biological and geological objects in ability of natural resources rational use, was created. THERE ARE LANDSCAPE ELEMENTS, INTERIOR conSTRUCTIONs AND FACADE ELEMENTS. f.a, landscape allow managiNg WATER LEVEL IN DROUGHT AND FLOODS.
Smart facade panels and interior structures absorb an excess moisture from air, purify and store it, etc. IT IS UNIVERSAL CONSTRUCTOR, WHICH CAN BE USED IN OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL AND INNOVATION PROJECTS. Volga Hydrology Centre demonstrates this specific and hybrid program of the cluster.
