Axonometric of Tropical Biome
A towering retreat at Old Street Roundabout harvesting foreign fruits of the world at Global Destinations in London.
(2040) London is its own microclimate, pulsating heat, absorbing and releasing water. While the temperature of the UK has risen by 2 C, summer heat waves hit London regularly topping 40 C. Bananas, pineapples and figs are all fruits of England.
Harvesting heat from Londons Urban Heat Island, HOT-el will turn waste into luxury. We import 3.5 million tonnes of fruit annually to the UK, 31% of which is the banana. With our growing lust for exotic foods, can we cross-fertilise our desire for an exotic landscape with food production
