iFarm is pleased to announce the winners of the first-ever contest
for a vertical farm design in Bali’s Nuanu, held in collaboration with the Nuanu community. The contest challenged architects to offer a design solution for a high-tech sustainable vertical farm that will be constructed
in Nuanu in the fall of 2023.
We received over 150 interest requests from architects around the world. The panel of experts carefully evaluated each project based on a set of criteria, including the alignment with Nuanu’s vision and philosophy, complexity and cost of implementation, integration with the surrounding environment, and compliance with technical requirements.
iFarm and the Nuanu community are thrilled to announce the following winners:
- 1st place: TREE OF LIFE by Anna Konoplitskaya
- 2nd place: Bioshell by Highlight Architecture
- 3rd place: Reflection by Geometrium Studio
Congratulations to Anna Konoplitskaya, Highlight Architecture and Geometrium Studio! All the three finalists will be awarded special prizes from Nuanu and iFarm.
The winner, Anna Konoplitskaya, will receive a contract to further develop her project and bring it to life in the heart of Nuanu City on Bali.
Her TREE OF LIFE vertical farm’s design proposal is based on the Tri-Hita-Karana (Three causes to prosperity) Balinese wisdom. Tri-Hita-Karana promotes harmony among fellow human beings through communal cooperation and promoting compassion; harmony towards God and harmony with their environment, which strives to conserve nature and promote the sustainability and balance of the domain.
