Vertical Farm for South Korea
A vertical farm designed by Dongjin Lee, Park and Lee Jinkyu Jeongwoo see the South Korean won, raised in the vertical structures. Symbiosis Tower named circular, the building is a skyscraper that will give you the opportunity to turn urban farming in cities. Platforms with lawns of the house spiral cows and chickens that alternate their habitats, then every 30 days. This will allow the grass to grow back in the land then grazed cows again be restored to the particular platform.Moreover, the vertical farm concept designers won a permanent place in the Skyscraper Competition 2011.

Named as Valley Effect, the new design that promises to develop a positive carbon ecosystem and natural built environment. It is natural to reach the valley the environment in a compact urban environment with the help of interconnected towers that offer a unique model of urban agriculture separately.
Valley Effect-a Terraced Urban Farm
At a time when lifestyles are flourishing with negligence in the cause of nature and living spaces are more compact, designers have creatively used the mass of the building to provide maximum space opened in a urban compact. As such, the apartments will have access to at least 50 square meters of open garden. Even the sliding window boxes umbrellas are used more and more numerous smaller plants. This will allow residents to become self-sufficient in many vegetables and fruits. It can bring back the charm of ancient agriculture.

It is a terraced urban farm.
There are also provisions for renewable energy production. As such, the buildings must be aligned with the wind patterns to create an effect of valley and maximize the performance of wind turbines on the site. In addition, outside of all buildingswill be equipped with more than 4,800 solar panels and fiber optic light collection system rooted in a Parasol With these measures, each block would be the excess production of electricity by 121 percent and consume only 45 percent of water. Each apartment has a bike that would be able to clean energy feedback tothe network with a new plug out of the system.
Shimizu Corporation dream of building an entire island that is completely environmentally friendly. The Green Float city aims to be a botanist negative carbon carbon constantly eating. Homes and services will be at a height of 1000 m above Ecuador, so it is truly a city in the sky. Increasing the temperature will be maintained throughout the year between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius. The next generation of technologies are planned to be implemented to eliminate fossil fuels and increase the thermal insulation. Electricity production uses natural resources such as waves, wind and solar power satellites. It also aims to food self-sufficiency of 100% and the conversion of waste to energy, making the city completely autonomous and ecological.
We live remarkably convenient lives in cities that have developed along economic lines.
But happiness should be measured separately from material wealth.
Contact with Nature. Time passed leisurely in cultural pursuits. Healthy and comfortable living.
And blending into and living and growing harmoniously with Nature as part of the ecosystem.
We can make a city, like a single plant, that embodies these principles.
Our model of a new environmental city was born from these aspirations.
Green Float Building a 1km high tower that is a vertical farm with a Green Float city perched on top, all on a floating concrete platform out on the ocean might seem improbable, but a number of leading universities, engineers and technology firms have signed up to work on this. The idea is that each Green Float city will power and feed itself, providing a self sufficient and carbon-neutral city of up to 50,000 people.

Here is a TOPOS A Sustainable Social Forum. This social forum hosts events to cover administrative costs and maintenanceof public workspace and free. Also obtained from the exploitation of private study.Therefore, it is a self-reinforcing system that is anti-democratic and socialcompatible economic opportunities, while allowing people to grow in the diversification of their career. This system is designed to support collaborative efforts of companies. TOPOS Forum feeds at one time the social climate and context. Totally natural grass straw, the building is connected to the community forum on one side and the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena and the road on the other.
A Sustainable Social Forum-TOPOS
The roof of the building is dry vegetation, and its emptiness and curves help to deal with the high wind pressure and the flow rate exceeds the water. Columns are created inside the building which appear to be absorbed into the surrounding wood. These columns are made to reflect a geometric design stapled. TOPOS building has a unique and innovative style. This whole project offers the possibility of a future large-scale sustainable design. This is an attempt to green to create a forum for people who want to collaborate in their efforts, special workwear andtherefore grow together.

Here is a Brewerymarket Architectural designed by Lorene Faure and Kenny Kinugasa Tsui Architects. Many architects are inspired by the architecture of nature and follow her example, two creative designers have studied plant design of a building remarkable.Lorene Faure-Kinugasa Tsui was awarded third prize at the farmers market with its innovative agriculture beer called Hop Farm urban design Brewerymarket.
Brewerymarket designed by Faure and Kinugasa Tsui
Brewerymarket design was conceived with the plan to create a space in the historic neighborhood of Highland Square West Highlands. The main entrance is in a prime location Brewerymarket, 32 West Avenue, en route to Denver, where the Colorado Convention Center celebrates the annual festival of American beer.

Another intention is that Brewerymarket building of local identity, consolidate the Highlands of West London to present the best year-round programming, including agriculture and brewing hops. To display the talent, there is an area designated as the place for community events and arts live music and vendors are assigned spaces flexible market to sell their products.
The innovation of Brewerymarket building is based on the natural properties of the plant of Salto. Hop is a main ingredient in beer production, adding flavor and work as a stabilizing agent. He paid special dedicated to the interior structure, a dynamic garden is recreated inside. Hops are grown in the posts and hopefully decorate the interior of green facade of the building. The idea of adjustable mounting systems for modular valve plates are derived from the observations of the designer of natural material properties of cloves of hops.

Many other aspects of Brewerymarket building were taken from nature. The clear PVC folding roof canopy acts as a condenser. Take water for other uses such as irrigation or the front of the beer brewery hops farm. The modus operandi of this lightweight system is simple and has low maintenance cost.
Similar to the shape of a plant, the geometry of the folding awning is designed with a maximum surface area to increase heat exchange. Heat is dissipated during the night, with condensation and provides an inclined surface in the channel rainwater white funnel, which in turn drain water that accumulates in the brewery.[Brewerymarket]

The Leeuwarden housing project designed by the firm OODA Portuguese and Spanish society OOIIO Architecture, is an interesting attempt to bridge the gap significantly and impregnable often between urban and rural areas. In the world many industrialized and developing, green is to make way for skyscrapers. The proposal for the housing project in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands is a refreshing change. It is based on the concept of floating water lilies to highlight an architectural marvel that gives due attention to sustainability and the use of natural resources of energy to meet the energy needs of residents.
Leeuwarden Housing Project by OODA + OOIIO Architecture
The proposed residential project borrows the features of the landscape in the Netherlands Freisland native of the province. These combine the concept of water lilies floating in the agreements for urban development. The different types of residential structures are proposed. Apartments and houses on the ground floor is planned. Marina Apartments offers three different options to buyers according to their requirement and the money you can spend. The same applies to the apartments of the tower. Accommodation options offer up to eight storey alternatives for people to choose. The first phase includes construction of 100 homes, while the remaining 385 housing units will come in later.
A series of waterways divide plots with structures, green spaces and agricultural areas.[Leeuwarden Housing Project]
Appropriate areas were marked for public spaces, public parks and public areas.The Housing Project offers the sports division of the area in a way that green areas are provided. Other than that, the water channels in residential areas and islands of vegetation cover to recreate the splendor of floating lily pads. Canals draw water from the river, Leeuwarden. Agriculture is still the marks share the coexistence of natural and urban environments. Apart from the road to cars, separate lanes for cycling to allow the use of an ecological means of transport that functions as a mode of exercise to keep fit.
