Floating farms

A new system of loop-like floating towers located on the surface of nearby harbours has become an agricultural hub that functions all year round. This concept is based partly on previous experiments with floating fish farms, used in the region since the 1930s. Those farms were primitive wooden structures situated close to the shore and functioning both as small markets and as ’ponds’ for fish and lobsters.


The looped form lets this vertical construction absorb more light, almost entirely eliminating shadows, thus contributing to faster plant growth.


A sensor network, located on the surface of towers, monitors the conditions and growth of the plants and sends this information to the city control centre.
