Precedent | Modular Mashambas Skyscraper | Pawel Lipiński & Mateusz Frankowski

Post on dezeen of the winning entry to the 2017 International Skyscraper Competition, The Mashambas Skyscraper.  It’s a modular farm tower in Africa that can be expanded as needed to include many other community facilities like a nursery, doctor’s surgery and drone landing port for transporting goods on /  off the tower.  An interesting precedent for my project.

  1. I’m no longer sure where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend a while studying more or working out more. Thanks for fantastic information I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.


    1. Hi Alex, if you’re looking for more information you might want to follow the Dezeen article link. The designer’s names are on there too. If you do a little searching you may be able to find them somehow and in turn they might be able to answer any questions you have.


  2. I do believe all of the ideas you’ve offered for your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters. May you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.


    1. Hi Trudy, if you follow the link in the post through to the Dezeen article you’ll find out a little bit more about the project and who designed it. This was an early precedent I came across and was more interested in the concept and idea rather than it’s specific relevance to my own project. The use of drones for delivering produce is fun and interesting but one I don’t personally agree with especially in relation to my project. I don’t think most people would be happy with drones buzzing around their heads all day long, they’d get used to it after a while but the invasion of privacy would be pretty severe, all for the sake of getting a parcel slightly quicker. Not really a major priority I feel, but in the context of Pawel & Mateusz’s tower it makes a kind of sense. Also the methods of vertical farming employed in their project are different to the ones I was looking into for my aquaponics proposal. If you search for the tag ‘aquaponics’ on my blog you’ll see how my investigations differed. But the idea is conceptually relevant still. Thanks.
