Hay’s design utilizes innovative technology to address environmental issues posed by contemporary lifestyles. With over 50,000 people dying from pollution in the UK every year, the LG Eco-City garden aims to reduce pollution through the use of specially selected trees, plants and shrubs, and provides a replicable blueprint for inner-city high rises.

The garden will be both self-sufficient and energy efficient.

The latest aquaponics systems will be used to provide nutrients from fish waste to nourish a vertical vegetable and herb farm, and new solar technologies will replace conventional building materials to power LED lighting that creates the perfect conditions to help vegetables and herbs grow.
