Nuanu City, a new creative and sustainable project in Bali, Indonesia, and iFarm, a global provider of vertical farming technology, are pleased to announce an open call for architects to design a vertical farm.
The contest seeks innovative minds who can offer design solutions aligned with the town's vision and its architects' plans for sustainability and food safety while also contributing to the preservation of the environment and biodiversity of this beautiful subtropical region.
"We encourage submissions that incorporate harmonious biomimetic architecture to house rows upon rows of lush berries, crunchy salad leaves, and delicate tomatoes grown indoors in the soft glow of LED lighting by ML-based technology," the iFarm team stated.
"Nuanu is a way of thinking. Its main goal is to find a base formula that sparks a chain reaction of positive changes in the world. In search of this formula, we aim to unite the most creative people around a sustainable concept of life, enriched with cutting-edge technologies, creating a platform where each creative thought can become a step into the future," says Filipp Milash, the lead architect of Nuanu.
Draft concepts will be evaluated and judged by a panel of experts based on a set of criteria. The top three finalists will be awarded prizes, with the second and third place receiving $1,500 and $500, respectively. The first-place winner will also receive a contract to further develop their design and collaborate with a team of experts to bring their vision to life. This opportunity allows the winner to shape the future of agriculture in remote islands around the world.
Applications will be accepted from March 20 to April 7, 2023 (please leave your request in the form below). The organizers will select the finalists, each of whom will be interviewed between March 25 and March 30. The detailed terms of reference and topographical survey will be sent to participants once they have registered for the contest.
