The Beenleigh Hills is an experimental architectural design typology integrating densified cohousing, vertical farming, solar farming and boutique agricultural fields. Sustainable design must build vertically and become part of the eco-system. An eco-system has no waste, just another resource for another system to plug into. Building vertically must expand past our traditional way of thinking about living and working, it should include growing our food which currently uses 1/5th of the Earth’s available land area. Vertical farming is the solution to feeding a growing global population and halting deforestation. Advancements in energy, robotics and low cost aeroponic modular systems are first required for vertical farming to be feasible.
