LONDON VERTICAL FARM, London / Vereinigtes Königreich


Non Architecture Competitions

In 2020 we started the second phase of competitions to address the issues of tomorrow.

In line with our style, we propose 9+2 themes – eleven critical topics to work on. Rather than a program, a research ecosystem composed of various competitions running in parallel and exploring the same theme from different perspectives.

Our exploration journey will continue with theme six: WASTE.

Brief in short:
In this competition, we encourage participants to come up with visionary concepts for a vertical farm in the urban context – only 1 drawing, absolute freedom of scale. Designers are asked to design a vertical farm integrated into the urban fabric, while providing a sustainable solution. By focusing on the food production in the urban environment, designers can also come up with innovative and creative solutions to problems such as space limitations and environmental degradation.

Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually. The registration fee is paid per team, regardless of how many members form it. Personal information of all the team members can be uploaded during the submission procedure of the final drawing.
