The population growth and the urban centralization lead to an increase of the demand in the real estate market and in the food. One possible solution is the vertical farming. For these reasons, AWR proposes the design of a new skyscraper on the Thames waterfront. The new tower will be inserted into the new city skyline.
The competition requires the design of a vertical farm with a residential use. In The city there is still a strong demand for housing and for public functions in downtown areas where the presence of public transportation makes the site extremely strategic.
The city offers the chance to build a real vertical city, which may include a public plaza, shopping areas, restaurants and residences. Londoners welcomes the macro-structures that allow them to experience the city as well as possible. At the same time this project allows people to do many activities both indoors and outdoors because of the weather. For more information go to the competition’s official website.
