#NewYork: le MetLife Building sera vert
What if one of NYC's most iconic buildings was transformed into a towering vertical farm? Metals in Construction magazine recently sponsored a design contest for the fictional renovation of the city's 50+-story MetLife building at 200 Park Avenue. Among the entries, a unique proposal from Canadian architecture firm Lemay has captured the attention of developers, environmentalists, and comic book fans. The firm’s “Farm Follows Fiction” design envisions the tower as “the world’s tallest farm” , and the proposal is unlike any other in that the designers chose to package their ideas in the form of a quirky graphic novel.
