Abstract
Instead of the energy and ecological relocation, SYMBIONT City detects ener-gy opportunities and possible urban folding to achieve thermodynamic benefits. Although some agendas have already fostered the concept of symbiotic planning, neither current infrastructural systems nor urban regulatory frameworks allow for its real implementation. SYMBIONT is a set of local laboratories designed to ena-ble new synergies between waste, energy and information flows on existing urban waste transfer facilities. It pretends to raise the level of urban resilience in cities by acting on existing urban facilities and adjacent urban setting through the imple-mentation of local laboratories able to monitor, process, and reconnect existing waste, energy and information flows while recovering the notion of infrastructure as public space through social engagement actions. These spatial facilities have a strategic value as nodal urban locations -with potential phase-change capacity- for neighbourhood waste and energy flows. These micro-infrastructural interven-tions will help in the aforementioned transition allowing for a turn from ?grey? towards ?green? infrastructures, with capacity to provide social, ecological and economic benefits to urban communities such as reduction of waste disposal, lo-cal energy generation and storage, improvement of air quality, reduction of ener-gy costs and new opportunities to social cohesion and engagement.
