Ecological Food Research Lab
Site : Upper Manhattan, New York, USA

Harlem’s endangered species research lab aims to establish new socio-ecological patterns in Upper manhattan and bronx. By re-establishing eco-interactions between bat, river fish (eel & herring) and their companion plants, this innovative food production lab will serve as a multi-scale community garden to the locals. Making used of gutter space, multi-scaled food production emerged in any impossible niches in the area.

The lab will focus on studying how complex surfaces control Bats’ flight paths. And thus enhance multi-species-pollination on fruit productions. Waste (guano) produced in this cycle will be transferred to the hydroponic system, which promote reproductions of river fish, and make use of minimum surfaces as opportunities for vegetables’ growth.
