Tropical self-sufficiency

 

This project was undertaken with a local green engineering firm, to support a wider team of consultants exploring the development of a luxury resort on a private island in the Caribbean. We were tasked to develop a high-vitality food and health generation hub... a very fun project in which we were tasked to dream big! The concept is a spiral-nautilus site plan, consisting of a large geodesic dome in the center that serves as a social hub, spirulina farm, and cafe. Greenhouses and permaculture-themed polyculture food systems radiate around the central dome, and are connected by a bamboo-framed jogging/walking path that connects back to the main event center at the center of the island.
