This greenery filled Beehive Tower for Heron Quay, London is a vertical farm inspired by the hexagonal forms of the honeycomb. Designed by Rory Newel & Lucy Richardson, the 220m high ‘Hive’ is a place for green thumbs to reside and to cultivate all kinds of plants, especially edible ones. The structure features a number of sustainable systems such as an army of wind turbines that sits atop it and a rainwater collection system to water the crops within it.
