DA Vertical Farm

In 2017 Deutscher Architecture installed a studio vertical farm.  It was with the intention of learning more about hydroponic systems and to have fresh produce available for all of its employees.  The Vertical Farm utilities a vertical drip system that provides a constant feed of nutrient solution.  Once seedlings have been grown they are inserted into a growing medium that keeps them in place along the vertical towers. For more information about this system refer to the manufactures website:
