Urban Farming with Hive-Inn City Farm

If you thought farming was best done in the country, then you haven’t seen the Hive-Inn City Farm designs. These proposed designs are for a modular, modern farming structure to be erected in the concrete jungle that is New York City.

Created by the visionaries at OVA Studio, based in Hong Kong, the Hive-Inn City Farm draws heavily on designs from the Hive-Inn Hotel, in which shipping containers are stacked upon one another to create a highly versatile, aesthetically appealing building.

The Hive-Inn City Farm was designed to nurture a complete ecosystem in which each of the shipping containers have a specific purpose within the unit, ranging from producing food, harvesting energy or recycling water and waste.
