Architectural and construction solutions for the technological spaces of agricultural clusters located in an arcology skyscraper
Yanko Aleksandrov
Abstract: Agricultural clusters are a new and specific form of meeting the fruit and vegetable needs of the inhabitants of arcology skyscrapers. The technological spaces of these clusters require a shell-protected volume structure against external influences with a specific functional purpose, according to the specifics of the production in them. This envelope should allow architectural execution in different geographical areas, including those with harsh climate. Innovative technical solutions with an inventive step (protected by patents for inventions) are a prerequisite for ensuring a microclimate with precisely defined parameters. The high competitiveness of agricultural production will depend on the way, in which selected varieties (e.g. tomatoes, peppers, or cultivated blueberries, raspberries) are grown. The location of the technological spaces of the clusters can be on an open roof, in separate one or two floors with a prefabricated structure, also located on the roof, or in the last floors of the arcology skyscraper – for example greenhouses with shelves. The construction of the clusters and the arcology skyscraper must guarantee resistance to wind, earthquake and fire. With increased consumption of certain varieties, in two or three neighboring skyscrapers can be concentrated their production in other similar agricultural clusters.
