Edible Infrastructures is pleased to announce a collaboration with ARExA on the design of a rooftop greenhouse for a school in lower Manhattan.  The vision, is to create a lightweight learning environment for K-12 students developing an understanding of science, the environment, health, economics and entrepreneurship through the production of food, research and innovation.

We’ve just completed the initial feasibility study, which proposes a learning laboratory equipped with a variety of growing technologies and net-zero building systems housed under an ETFE clad gridshell structure.

Other partners include ARUP, NY Sunworks, Architen Landrell and Caliper Studios.
