Floating Nests Loft Farming Tower

The Loft London Farm Tower in the form of an imaginary gigantic tree in whose artificial crown two big loft formations are placed as floating nests. The vision of an unprecedented zest for life (joie de vivre) while, at the same time, utilising the entire Metropolitan logistics. The "floating nest concept" is based on a high exploitation of the air space above the respective plot of land in connection with a minimal impact on the available plot area. The main utilization of all nest levels is defined as a mixture of vertical farming and inhabitable loft areas.

London as an international city London, it is sometimes said, is as unrepresentative of the United Kingdom as New York is of the United States. There’s some truth in this. Both cities have astonishingly cosmopolitan populations, their restaurants are almost as diverse as their immigrants, they are important centres of international finance, they pioneer the latest fashions, and their range of shops and theatres is absurdly disproportionate to their size. But London is umbilically linked to the rest of Britain in some crucial respects. Unlike New York, it is a capital city, spawning governmental institutions. It is also an ancient city, dating back to Roman times. Foreign forces have not occupied it since the Normans arrived in 1066 and, although it was bombed during World War II, most of its iconic buildings survived. As a result, it exudes a palpable sense of the nation’s history. You can walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare, or Dickens, or Churchill. You can journey along the Thames, as Henry VIII did. You can visit the room in the Tower of London where Sir Francis Drake lived out his last days. You can drink in the pubs where Dr Samuel Johnson drank in the 18th century or you can sit in the reading room where Karl Marx studied.
