Aeroponic 2100 flying farms by Mcheileh Studio | Redesign the World | Dezeen

Mcheileh Studio’s proposal to build aeroponic farms in huge airships to distribute food around the globe has been awarded second place in Dezeen’s Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion.

The proposal, called Aeroponic 2100, envisions dirigibles that fly through towns, cities and residential spaces distributing food where it is needed.

The ships would eliminate the need to transport food over long distances via carbon-intensive modes of transport and free up land currently used for farming.

They would also eliminate pollution and create a “true farm to table solution on a mass scale”, according to Mcheileh Studio.

The airships would be climate controlled, self-sufficient, powered by solar and wind energy, and designed to travel anywhere in the world, including desert environments and natural or human-made disaster sites.

Redesign the World judges selected the entry as runner-up in the competition, which called for radical ideas to rethink planet Earth.

“People usually think of buildings as very fixed and permanent things, but they do not need to be,” the judges said.

“Mcheileh Studio’s dirigible architecture presents a compelling vision for a lighter, more mobile future where we can move our buildings to where they need to be without having to constantly build, destroy and rebuild permanent structures.”

Redesign the World is the ultimate design competition, which called for new ideas to rethink planet Earth to ensure that it remains habitable long into the future.

Launched in partnership with Epic Games, the contest asked entrants to visualise their concepts using architectural visualisation software Twinmotion.
