SOA: urbanana

in 2012, french practice SOA created the agricultural urbanism lab (LUA) for the study and implementation of agricultural innovation
within the fast-growing urban context. 'urbanana', wedged between two residential buildings, is an interior garden space devoted to the
cultivation of banana species including those no longer available in europe, along with waste management and exhibition area on the 
ground level. as vegetation matures over a cycle of light and seasons, the interior is free of a conventional flooring system in order to 
utilize maximum volume and daylight, with only a few bridges providing the necessary access between sections. a metal space frame 
structure supports the transparent curtain wall that encloses the large void like an enormous greenhouse, independent of the internal construction.
