Compact Land Reclamation System
What is land reclamation?
It is the creation of new territory through the process of filling submerged zones, usually in the area of coasts or riverbanks.
What is Landboxes?
It is a state-of-the-art land reclamation system: faster, more economical, without geological impact, and respectful with the environment.
The Landboxes Unit is the main modular element of the System. It is a large hexagonal volume box made of reinforced concrete, like a port caisson, that, thanks its special characteristics, allows it to be assembled with others to create new territory.
It is built through a naval platform, it is then positioned in a specific location and is assembled with other units until the required surface area has been achieved. It positioned through sustained gravity or tensioned flotation.
One of the main advantages of the Landboxes System is that it’s highly adaptable and can be implemented in any land reclamation project, no matter the location, size or depth, and is especially suitable for depths of 10 to 80 meters.
Landboxes is currently in the development stage of prototypes, patents and integration of solutions.
During the 2020-21 campaign, Landboxes is developing large projects for Mumbai Bay (India) and the Barcelona Coastline (Europe). In both cases, land reclamation exercises in half depth of more than 2,000,000 m2 and 500 Landboxes Units.
LML Systems - Logistics
LML is a super-efficient logistics system of last mile parcel delivery that is multipurpose, intelligent and fully automated, and which will be integrated natively in Landboxes System. This project is developed in partnership with LAIA Lab NYC.
During this season, Landboxes, in collaboration with LAIA Lab, has opened a research space at Harvard Innovation Lab for the implementation of a coastal resilency project, focused on impact measurement, active structural solutions and materials development.
