-FINALIST of Manhattan Wildscraper Competition


What was once known to man is now part of a mythological tale: The Garden of Eden. 

A place where biodiversity wasn’t a sought for quality. Instead, NYC has turned into Babylon. Hosting not one, but many towers of Babel. There is no land left for life to grow and even if there is, it is exploited for consumption. 


What if we reintroduced Eden to the modern world? A slab of land that is able to provide biodiversity in a concrete jungle such as Manhattan. Repurposing skyscrapers instead of making more. Using the allotted plot size as a chance to bridge the climate gap.  


Imagine an aerodynamic piece of land powered by a rainwater retention system, trees, critters and minerals that operate self-sufficiently. To do so it needs two stories in order to be surgically implemented into any existing skyscraper, which should not be a problem with the current rise in vacancies. It will attract investors with a green incentive by catering a below deck experience, serving fresh foods from the garden and revealing unimaginable views to a city that is slowly turning green.
