To the west of Vitoria-Gasteiz, there are industrial areas whose rapid growth caused the ecological fragmentation of the surrounding territory. The working area (Mendebaldea, 30 ha) was in a state of abandonment and contaminated soils before the intervention, which prevented its public use and any activity. The restoration of the area was proposed using nature-based solutions to create a large green infrastructure that would provide various environmental benefits: climate change mitigation, soil recovery and landscape improvement.
