The Dragonfly

Posted in interesting projects, studio 2a_2009 by Sarah Gelbard on 21 September 2009

Designed by Vincent Vallebaut, a stunning design that aims to meet the food, housing and energy challenges for the future. The Dragonfly is an urban farm concept for New York City’s Roosevelt Island, modeled after the wings of a dragonfly and designed to provide fresh, local food within an urban environment. Fruit, vegetables, grains, meat and dairy would be produced on the Dragonfly’s 132 floors and the entire structure would be powered by a combination of solar and wind power.
