Aether is a green space which stimulates and revitalizes visitors through the integration of an urban farm and hotel-market. In contrast to conventional notions of rural farming, Aether strives to implement the urban farm into a clean and sculptural space which reflects modern farming techniques.
A farm is the perfect addition to Wall street’s stark collection of corporate offices. Aside from providing farm-to-table meals, the farm provides learning opportunities for generations to come. It is a reminder that farming is not restricted to rural environments and reconnects us with our food sources. By integrating a farm into a hotel/market structure, it becomes apart of visitors’ and guests’ daily lives.
