Beirut Urban Utopia
By reintroducing farming to cities, BEIRUT URBAN FARM creates a hybrid between sustainable living and vertical farming. Located at the edge of the capital at the Nabatiyeh Beirut Tripoli (NBT) station, the objective is to restitch the surrounding urban areas while highlighting pedestrian flow. The aim is to transform and rethink the conventional urban fabric with a new vision through biophilic design tools.
BEIRUT URBAN FARM adapts these tools to form spaces favouring social interaction within a promenade going through the entire project. Different organic volumes serve the visitors by providing residential, commercial and farming spaces. BEIRUT URBAN FARM includes various systems through its envelop and design process creating a unique sustainable experience which focuses on the well-being of its visitors.
