Food Gardens, Channels, Vertical Farms - Shanghai Sustainable Masterplan

Part of the Sustainable Urban Masterplan for Shanghai, this image shows of the channels with pedestrian and slow traffic lanes on the right, and urban food gardens on the left. The channel transports water from vertical farm to vertical farm, cooling the city and being filtered through various plants and organisms along the way.

 

Two vertical farm buildings sit in the background, these farms supply sustainable energy, fresh water and food to 50.000 people in a range of one kilometer around their center. The open lower floors of the tower in the middle serves as a community garden, where residents can grow their own spices and specialty crops.

 

Details about the project and more images can be found here:
