When you’re working in an office with tiny workspaces and when you’re surrounded by nothing but concrete walls and artificial lights, even the slightest element that doesn’t fall into the same category would be like a breath of fresh air. This office features a very nice balance between natural and artificial elements. The giant fish tank separates the work spaces and provides the workers with something and relaxing to look at.
This version of hydroponics uses a refrigerated aquarium as a hatchery for freshwater fish, while vegetables grow on top in glass pods. The vegetables use the water from the fish tank, extract nutrients, filtering and purifying the water for the fish to reuse and develop. For those who don’t have the outdoor space to grow their own food, this may be an effective solution to the local food dilemma. The aquarium was exhibited at the Artists Space in NY.
