Athens Studio | Option Studio

Spring 2019

This project is the smallest, in scale and in scope, of three group projects done in the Arrival Studio. Each project deals with a different scale and deployment of urban agriculture in the city of Athens, Greece. This design proposes a modular green wall system that can be deployed on any rooftop in the city and can adapt to various geometries. It utilizes water collection systems and large planters as ballast for the structure, and incorporates various programs into the system. The design provides places for seating, storage, gathering, work surfaces and tables. This multi-functional, modular green wall provides perimeter safety and supports numerous programs for amenity, urban agriculture, and education.
