The skyscraper of ecological rebirth

Population growth, urbanization and shifting food culture are all leading to a lack of crop diversity, which poses a threat to global food and nutrition security. Polish architects Michał Spólnik and Marcin Kitala’s agro-ecological skyscraper ‘New Spring’ aims to restore the diversity of the natural landscape.

Rising over cultivating fields, the timber structure is envisioned as an aggregation of modules—each one holding the seeds of future gardens, fields, or farmlands, as well as laboratories, lecture spaces, data centers and high-tech composters. The modules would be made of cross-laminated timber, allowing for a fast fabrication, assembly and disassembly process.
