26 Story Vertical Farm Skyscraper Coming to Singapore
Architecture firm TR Hamzah & Yeang have designed a stunning eco-skyscraper called the EDITT (Ecological Design In The Tropics) Tower. Set to be built in downtown Singapore, the EDITT Tower transforms the usually cold, impersonal high-rise into a man-nature partnership that will actually help improve the environment.
The 26 story tower will have over half its surface area covered by organic local vegetation. Solar panels will generate up to about 40% of the building's energy demands, and human waste will also be converted into an energy source via an on-site bio-gas facility. Further adding to its autonomous sustainability, rainwater will be harvested, and a grey water system will purify and re-use waste water. If all that's not enough, the EDITT will be constructed using recycled and recyclable materials where possible.
