The Firewall is a vertical farm that has developed from the search for unused properties in the city. The design concept is based on the basic premise of using inner city densification for the production of food. The Firewall also serves as an energy Plus for the adjacent house across the firewall. The ground floor is accessible to visitors and connects the shop with a small market place out front.
The planning phase of the Firewall is complete and it is ready for implementation, just waiting for the optimum building site. A model of the Firewall has been included in the exhibition “Die Zukunft der Stadt / The future of the City” in the technical museum in Vienna.
This project has been developed on our own initiative to evaluate obstacles within the implementation gap. Questions and answers resulting to discussions with the municipality in Vienna, investors and real-estate developers have been important steps forward within the conceptual development.
