These beautiful designs for a water farm in New York City come courtesy of brothers Massimiliano Ercolani and Emanuele Ercolani, who together make up DoCK Lab, a multi-disciplinary design studio based in Rome. Their inspiring project is based on the possibility of developing New York’s East River in a sustainable way – installing hydroelectric generators under water and promoting organic farming. Sadly, it’s unlikely to happen. But these spacious drawings of an urban utopia, with watery, rusty skies, grey metallic rivers and grids of floating, eco-saving lawns are wonderful in and of themselves.
