As cities grow ever denser with increasing development, so do the number of forgotten, interstitial spaces. To activate those leftover spaces, architect Antonio Scarponi developed the Harvesting Station, an urban farming device that can grow up to 200 plants within a 43-square-foot greenhouse enclosure. The structure’s wooden framework is made from basic timber laths. The conceptual Harvesting Station is also topped by a small water tower that irrigates the plants using a micro-dripping system.
