Aleksandrov, Y. (2020). Floor orchards and small fruit- stores located in the lower floor of maisonette houses of a skyscraper. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 26 (6), 1151–1157
The article discusses the creation of agricultural complexes related to the cultivation of local fruits and vegetables in tall buildings, such as skyscrapers. A combination of multi-storey orchards and small orchards located on the lower floor of the penthouses of these tall buildings is proposed. The processing of fruits and vegetables can take place in one or two of the technical floors of the skyscraper structure. In the lower floors of the skyscraper there are also larger fruit storages for storing the excess products intended for transportation to the local markets.
It is especially important for the occupants to provide spaces for premises that will be used for a second purpose for medical purposes - for example for forced quarantine isolation in epidemics and pandemics (such as Corona virus), threatening the health and lives of the occupants. In this regard, the skyscraper was designed in Kun Ming, China. The structure of this skyscraper also integrates modern innovative technologies for energy maintenance of the building (photovoltaic coatings, greenhouse effect, steam generator), collection and use of rainwater.
