Hyperions - Agritectural Garden Towers

Paris based Vincent Callebaut Architectures has developed the design of a vertical, energy plus eco-neighborhood called "Hyperions" for Jaypee Green Sports City in India. With the double objective of energy decentralization and food deindustrialization, the approach is holistic, combining the best of low-tech and high-tech instead of systematically opposing them. The aim is to reconcile urban renaturation and small-scale farming with environment protection and biodiversity.

The Hyperions project is made of six garden towers, each 36-story high and comprised of housing and offices. The towers are built with cross-laminated timber (CLT) and are covered with orchard gardens. Their name comes from the tallest tree in the world, the Hyperion, a Sequoia Sempervirens found in Northern California, whose size can reach 115.55 meters (close to 380 feet).
