Vertical Farm in Manchester
by Liu Liwei, MAAD
The project aim to create a new pattern of producing, processing, consuming and educating of urban cultivation. The vertical farm in Manchester surposes to bring a green space in the city centre where a lack of leisure and natural spaces can’t satisfy the public. Parking spaces in the urban area can be utilized as the base of vertical farm, therefore the farms will not affect the original function structure by providing a new complex centre of urban food production above the inefficiently used parking spaces in city centre. Consideration of sunlight, technology, public contribution and involving can be seen as the response to the site – a land to be productive and attracting to the public.
