OVA Studio just unveiled plans for the Hive-Inn™ City Farm, a modular farming structure that aims to bring fresh and locally grown greens to urban centers. Constructed out of shipping containers stacked together like a colorful tower of Jenga blocks, the vertical farm acts as an ecosystem, in which each shipping container is designed for a specific function, from food and energy production to water and waste recycling. Similar to the funding scheme proposed in OVA Studio’s previous Jenga-like project, each unit can be owned or rented by local restaurants, private kitchens, or major organic brands. OVA Studio is currently looking for worldwide investors and developers to help bring their conceptual design to the next phase.
