Stackable Agriculture

Famed architect Richard Meier was commissioned by Wallpaper Magazine to design a model for raising animals in an urban environment. The result is a design with agriculture stacked up on different planes of a skyscraper.

Architizer notes that the "compound is clad in a signature Meier steel armature, though the units are pre-fabricated offsite and imported to the given site. It contains 'plug-in' living and farming units, the latter 'conceived as vertical vegetable plots to feed the adjoining apartments, with any surplus siphoned off into a local market.'"
