Vertical Park in Mexico City by Jorge Hernandez de la GarzaJune 2nd, 2009 - Posted in Architecture Design, Green Design
Located in Coyoacan, In the ever-expanding metropolis of Mexico City, This stunning Vertical Park, stackable solar skyscraper designed by Jorge Hernandez de la Garza can replicate its modules to raise urban spaces that provide trade and the main demands of the city. This architecture design intends to infuse the city with much-needed green space in the form of a modular skyscraper made up of a series of stacking units. The solar-powered structure contains sky-gardens in addition to spaces for living and working, and recycles all of its own water.
Jorge Hernandez de la Garza designed a triangular structure module with the objective of being able to articulate it within the cities of both horizontally and vertically and to be inserted into various urban locations reinforcing the idea interconnection within the urban fabric.
Each module of the Vertical Park can be configured to provide space for public and private use, water and solar collection, and urban farming. This allows for flexibility in design, size, and location – including the potential for relocation throughout the city or the world. The Vertical Park’s steel frame will support solar panels used to power the building’s diverse functions and allow wind to pass through structure on warm days.
