Three concepts are being developed to counter noise nuisance around 50 kilometers of roads in inner-city areas: Dawda, Absorba and My Green.
All three concepts are based on techniques from nature. At Dawda, noise is seen as a source of energy, which provides special feedback to road users. At Absorba, the design of the human intestine is central to the final solution: they develop bulbs made of a material with large absorbent surfaces that can be placed in the street. Finally, My Green will change the whole design of the street: by installing green spaces and lowering street sections, a solution will be devised for every type of noise nuisance.
