Located in Madrid, the Ecopolis Plaza is a stunning bright yellow structure designed to be a kindergarten school and public space. Meeting Spain's highest level of sustainable design standards, the Ecopolis aims to be a space for citizens of all ages with an emphasis on lifelong learning in regards to design-inspired well-being and sustainability.

Designed by ecosistema urbano architects, the Ecopolis combines passive energy saving systems with active systems while also optimizing any natural resources used in the building process. Integrating natural aspects and ecology into its multiple uses, the highly functional space will be a place of learning situated on the outskirts of the busy Spanish city.

The Ecopolis Plaza has won several awards, including Best Practice from the United Nations Habitat program.
