MIT Media Lab Greenhouse Facade
HANNAH designed a hanging farm facade laboratory for the MIT City Farm Group in the lobby space of the new Fumihiko Maki Media Lab extension building in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The structure attaches to and cantilevers off of three maintenance walkways in front of the existing facade, giving the appearance of a floating bridge structure. The laboratory will be used for testing aeroponic and hydroponic vegetable farming systems in daylight to reduce energy consumption during the farming process. The lightweight facade screen references notions of lush 19th century greenhouse architecture ornamentation and sets up a clear distinction to the existing achromatic architectural language.
