LATITUDE’s architectural proposal takes the New York urban Cartesian street grid to organize two main areas: a vertical farm and the residential area.
The farm side aligns with the High Line Park to the West, while the residential faces 10th Avenue in the East. The residential area is interrupted by the farm in one point by the farm laboratory, while the vertical farm does so by the residential community area.
The architectural design of Sky Condo features several energy efficiency systems: solar power, wind power, water harvesting and a natural lighting system. In this proposal, LATITUDE creates a versatile architectural typology that explores new ways of sustainable growth that will benefit metropolis in the years to come.
