In the city there is still a strong demand for housing and for public functions in downtown areas where the presence of public transportation makes the site extremely strategic.

The city offers the chance to build a real vertical village, which may include a public plaza, shopping areas, restaurants and residences. Londoners welcome these macro-structures that allow them to experience the city as well as possible. At the same time this project allows people to enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities, regardless of the weather.

The competition requires the design of a vertical farming with a residential use, a new kind of skyscraper on the Thames waterfront, inserted into the new city skyline. The goals to achieve are: Meet the requirements of the World Green Building Council; Determine which materials are best suited for the construction of a vertical farm; Identify resistant, light, transparent and long-term materials; Experiment with innovative materials.
