Blogging New York magazine: The Locavore Fantasia

New York magazine had a little fun in their most recent issue. They asked four architects to design their dream structure at the corner of Canal and Varrick Streets in New York.

One architect went big with locavores in mind.

Taking the green roof concept a few steps further, the idea presented by Dan Wood of Work AC is a vertical urban apartment building/farm that would feed its residents.

The strange angle of the building is tactical -- it leans back so that the crops face the sun.

Is a building like this feasible? That's up for discussion. Do we like the idea behind the rendering? Yes.
