Vertical Veggies Turn Office Towers Green
November 6, 2009 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Manuel Dreesmann’s “Green,” a moveable vertical garden system, received first prize at this year’s VisionWorks Award–Cargopacks 2020, awarded by Bayer MaaterialScience to university students for innovative concepts that benefit society and the environment.
The jury announced that the winning concept stood out for three reasons. “It uses no packaging, solves transportation and distribution problems through on-site production, and uses the concept of vertical farming in office buildings as the basis for a future-focused vision that can have a positive impact on the climate and atmosphere at the workplace.”
