What is a vertical farm? This short video was created to tell the story of the Eco-Laboratory. This concept of a Living Building was the first place winner of the national 2008 Natural Talent Competition. It was chosen this year to be a part of the National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? exhibition at the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
Seattle based Architecture firm Weber Thompson developed the EcoLab concept, along with input and collaboration with Dr. Dickson Despommier, Professor Emeritus at Columbia University. Hansen Belyea created this 5 minute video for inclusion in the Cooper-Hewitt's exhibition.
