But not only the rise of water is fraught with warming. In recent years, many communities suffer from a dramatically changed for the worse weather conditions. According to forecasts, Copenhagen threatens protracted, even more rare, rain and thunderstorms. That the population of the city was well protected from the elements, the architectural firm Tredje Natur offered fully reconstruct one of the densely populated areas of Copenhagen, has created the most "green" quarter, which would be able to cope with the unpredictable disasters such as the floods after rain.
For a start, 20% of existing streets transformed into green spaces, creating a natural sponge for excess moisture after the rains, which over the last two years have really become more abundant, though, and are not as common. New parks will be eco-friendly in addition seating, improving the atmosphere of the quarter.

Is the water that does not soak the trees will be collected in a huge floating ring in the park. It can be reused for watering plants or humidification in hot summer days. The ring also prevents collecting rainwater into streams and rivers, which can cause damage to buildings.
The same function is performed and the local bike path, the water from which water flows into a special tower. As planted park, the water will soak the plants planted on the roofs and walls, in addition to creating the conditions for increased biodiversity in the city and improving the quality of urban life. Architects believe that the technology adaptation will be the least painful and very effective, and it will be able to learn from other cities around the world.
