Project Description


This exploratory project is considered to be preparation for the development of a vertical farm prototype in Vienna. The main focus of the project is to explore the fundamental necessities for developing a vertical farm in an urban environment within the framework of a cooperative research and development project. Considerations will include essential plant physiology and architectural topology, analyses of potentials under certain climate conditions, concepts for the necessary building services, as well as communication and control technology. The vertical farm institute is working on this project in multidisciplinary collaboration with the TU Graz, the BOKU in Vienna and SIEMENS.
