Engineered Biotope vertical garden to nest endangered species of birds and wild plants

Developed as a part of ‘Piraeus Tower 2010” competition, the “Engineered Biotope” by London-based architects Anthi Grapsa and Konstantinos Chalaris is a unique architecture that uses modern agricultural techniques to allow green spaces for the residents as well as the endangered species of birds and wild plants. Comprising a grid of glass tubes to nurture seedlings in the first two floors, the new vertical garden also features a system of small biotopes, from 3rd to 22nd floor, to accommodate small vegetation along the surface of the facade. In addition, the modules can be re-located with the help of a robotic crane to allow adequate sunlight and water supply to the garden. Of course, the climate plays a major role in this re-positioning, keeping the plants green and healthy in different weather conditions.
