belgian firm 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.

to ensure the social diversity and a permanent life cycle (24h/24) in the tower,
the mixed programmation is mainly laid out around two poles of housing
and work places. around housings, offices and research laboratories as well as
the most private to the most public agricultural and leisure spaces are designed
in gardens, kitchen gardens, orchards, meadows, rice fields, farms and suspended
fields. the distribution of flows is made around a true safe spine spreading in loop
the numerous elevators, the goods elevators and stair wells serving all the levels
by separating simultaneously the inputs and the outputs recycled from plants,
animals and human beings.
