The final tour we filmed at Royal College of Art graduate show 2012 features projects from the Architecture course including a high-rise hotel growing tropical fruit and an insect-powered office tower.
Professor of Architecture Alex de Rijke introduces the course and presents student Louis Hall's investigation into the way cities develop around motorway infrastructure and the effects major corporations might have on the built environment.
De Rijke also talks about Haiwai Xie's model for low-rise, high-density living in London modelled on a Chinese neighbourhood.
Student Christopher Green describes his design for a high-rise office building that would cultivate insects both as a sustainable food source and a method for storing data within the structure.
