Skyland is a design for an urban eco-building for the production of biological foods cultivated in a controlled indoor greenhouse environment. Within it the whole food chain will unfold ranging from production, which will take place on 30 terraced fl oors, to retail sales, located on the ground fl oor of the building. The whole process will follow specifi c sustainability and health promotion criteria, principles which today are inseparable from urban development.
