A vertical growth seminar

Project of the Master in Advanced Architecture of IAAC developed in collaboration with 
the Architectural Association School of Architecture

Through a collaborative project including both design and fabrication, a five meter tall 
structure was developed. It hosts both grape vines and a closed loop hydroponic system, 
and consists of modular components that can be added to expand the vertical system. 

The site location of this project is the Valldaura Labs of the Institute of 
Advanced Architecture, Catalonia. The aspect of growing and harvesting grapes in the 
vertical as well as more urban context, drove this project and inspires further 
development of the concept of an urban vineyard.
