The scheme’s design centers on a hexagonal module, replicating to form an arched “tunnel within a tunnel”. Constructed either by hand or machine, the 3D-printed hexagonal modules become the skeleton structure for a radical, forward-looking urban farming initiative.
Following extensive research into the future of food, a circular system has been designed to focus on three food groups predicted to become prevalent in our future diets: aquaponics, algae, and insects. These three groups, with unique and specific inputs and outputs, can in fact thrive on the flow of waste and materials between them, while also using waste generated by surrounding retail and residential buildings. The output: a healthy, varied diet of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and supplements, as well as a variety of off-shooting industries, from biofuel to medicine.
