This conceptual design focuses on creating a completely self-sustaining organism that not only utilizes solar, wind, and water energies, but also addresses the pending food shortage problem.The complex is arranged in a way that housing units and work offices are interspersed between meadows and farms.
Vincent Callebaut Architectures have designed a vertical farm based on the wings of a dragonfly. Located along the east river at the south edge of rooselvelt island in new york city the tower is a true living organism being self sufficient in water, energy and bio fertilizing. Spanning 132 floors and 600 vertical meters, the dragonfly can accommodate 28 different agricultural fields for the production of fruit, vegetables,grains, meat and dairy. The metal and glass wings, directly inspired by the exoskeleton of a dragonfly, house the plant and animal farms.
