Sustainable “Clip-On” Room

The Plant Room prototype clips onto high-rise buildings.

A design team from New Zealand is making their idea for sustainable building a reality. In last year’s Sustainable Habitat Challenge, a competition in which teams from New Zealand submit designs for sustainable building, the design team from Wellington, New Zealand, submitted the Plant Room. The Plant Room is a clip-on room for a high rise that is designed for green space—providing hot water, rainwater, room for growing vegetables and herbs, and more. The Plant Room bolts onto existing apartments and overall improves the sustainability of the building. The team is in the process of creating two physical Plant Rooms: one to be transported as an exhibit, and the other as an actual prototype for use.
