Food is a key factor in the Las Vegas’ resiliency planning. If anything were to ever happen to the city’s highways, Las Vegas would run out of food long before it ever would run out of water. By creating a food hub the opportunity for local agriculture can greatly increase.
This new mixed use development incorporates the food hub’s distribution system and educational functions with a high rise apartment complex that is the pinnacle of at home gardening in Las Vegas.
On the west end on the building is a large vertical gardening and windcatcher. This system allows for the opportunity to grow food year round and helps provide natural ventilation.
