With the modern world stretching out vertically, rather than horizontally, it’s also inevitable for our green structures and gardens. Amin Taha Architects are building gardens in the sky in their new Vauxhall tower, with 25,000 square feet of communal gardens, each three stories in height.
The new green structures may not only be a great place for evening walk and social activities, but also our first step towards vertical farming on skyscrapers. Apparently, the one on the top, won’t be just a garden in the concrete jungle that surrounds it, because it may produce food to feed the hungry. Of course, the space also offers a great way to create fresh air and should be a portal for healthy living.
The planned tower will stand 130m tall and will feature 178 residential units, as well as office space. Let’s hope future developments will include all these … and more. Doesn’t sound like a bad idea, at all. – via TreeHugger
