Agora Garden, Luxurious Residential Tower,
Taipei 2010-2016, Taiwan
Designed by Vincent Callebaut Architecture, the 455,000-square-foot Agora Tower will have an orchard, a vegetable garden, space for aromatic and medicinal plants, and a compost and rainwater capture system.
Vincent Callebaut Architectures won a competition for the project in 2010.
On completing this project in 2016; each 540 square meter apartment will have an interior green wall as well, guaranteeing ideal air quality and a great green art. By pushing the day light right down to the basement by a circular light funnel, the solar absorbers capture and utilize the solar energy. Moreover, low E glass will moderate excess solar gain and prevent thermal loss.
