Why have we decided to work on a Shelter for an outdoor aquaponics system? As a consequence of urbanization you can often find unused spaces between buildings and roads. Nobody seems to know what to do with these deserted areas, but we liked the idea of giving them a new purpose. The idea is to convert the abandoned areas into fresh and sustainable food producing areas with the use of aquaponic systems. In order to keep these systems working, there is the need for shelters/igloos compliant with specific requiremens. Our aim is to meet these requirements, while developing a stylish shelter that supports local food production in the most sustainable way possible. The aim is to solve every problem with a sustainable approach and use this market niche to revolutionize the look of densely populated areas. We think that this project accompanies the Zeitgeist of our generation and is a beautiful combination of sustainable business, engineering and design
