InterACT 2022

InterACT simulates a practice-based environment where student of architecture, engineering and quantity surveying are given the opportunity to collaborate in ‘Design Teams’ to resolve a design task. Our team had been designed a four-storey vertical farm on the existing structure of the Temple Gasworks. The cantilevered floors will be supported underneath together with suspension cables support on the inner circle edge that connect with the roof. Etfe roof and wall cladding will be used to maximise the use of natural light, creating a greenhouse. Rainwater will be harvested and collected into a water tank; to be attached on four corners of the external cantilever. The water will then be used for the farming.
