"Our cities are completely drowned in heat islands and urban deserts.
We spend too much of our precious energy to climatize buildings and to find fresh and food.
Just as we look back today and weird the world without mobile communication, laptops and the internet,
future generations will not understand why for so long we covered our buildings with burnt clay, stone, iron and tar - instead of gardens"
– Sérgio Rocha, Instituto Cidade Jardim Founder.
