For this reason, the Salt & Water studio has designed a multifunctional floating greenhouse, as it is capable of generating clean energy while growing organic food in the Danube River. In addition to producing energy and food, this floating structure could also serve as a platform for education and community development.
Salt & Water has designed this floating greenhouse as an environmentally friendly learning center for the enjoyment of the citizens of Belgrade.
This barge has been designed as a place where the citizens of Belgrade can get acquainted with vertical gardens, with special classes on irrigation systems and alternative ways of growing organic food in urban areas, usually in confined spaces ”described by the designers.
The floating structure consists of a greenhouse with vertical gardens at one end and a small building at the other. Solar panels and wind turbines generate renewable energy and energy from an efficient irrigation system that provides moisture to plants with recycled water.
