Sky Garden NYC

A Sustainable Urban Farm for a Sustainable Human Race   |  New York, NY

This vertical garden in the heart of the meatpacking district in NYC also hosts residential units and flagship retail space.  It provides a swell of energy to a tired area and connects the street to the famous High Line park.  This sustainable building's primary function is to grow food to supply an overpopulated city, but it also serves as an example and educational resource for what massive cities, like NYC, need in order to survive.  Humans are running out of food ... image if 1 out of every 10 skyscrapers in NYC was a food production resource?  This is just one option to highlight how this dream could become a reality.
