Food supply system

The bowl like Bromeliad is used to cultivate crops. There is a mud layer at the bottom of the large leaf. It forms the foundation for the terrace system, used to cultivate the different crops. Incas and other highland civilizations used this terrace agricultural system.

The name Bromeliad refers to the tropical plant that grows high in the canopy of the tropical forest. The plant captures water. This tiny water pool functions as a small ecosystem. The water forms the source of the agricultural system.

Processing food

Drones fly from the leaves towards the foodtower. This organic tower consists of egg like chambers constructed along the bromeliad leave and the pillar. Inside the tower the food gets processed into ready to eat meals. These meals are delivered by the mini-chiroptera to the people that live inside the city.
