Our research and design projects deal with any issues relating to the well-being of people and plants inside closed buildings, from basic research to planning actual vertical farms. Our work has been presented and discussed at venues such as the Biennale in Venice, the Vienna Design Week, SOHO in Ottakring, as well as numerous international conferences and symposia.


Our work includes all phases, from the feasibility study to fundamental research, and then on to an implementation of perpendicular vertical farms. Framework conditions, such as climate conditions, renewable energy potentials, dietary habits of the area, socio-cultural idiosyncrasies, as well as the readiness of the community with regard to innovation and public involvement must all be cleared up to be able to create a substantial contribution to the future viability of the city.


Presenting the findings of our research with respect to the potentials of vertical farming is among the core missions of the vertical farm institute. The founder of the vertical farm institute, Daniel Podmirseg, introduces the current state of research at international conferences and symposia, presenting on the past, present and future of food.
