Boston architects propose vertical farms tended by robotic arms

Bostonian architecture firm Höweler + Yoon took a look at some of the stalled construction projects around town and decided to not only gussy them up, but make them useful as well. The solution? Eco-Pods, or algae garden capsules attached to the skeletal, halted construction projects.

Designed in cooperation with LA's Squared Design Lab, the capsule would be rotated and repositioned by robotic arms to maximize efficiency, and the end product would be biofuel. It's all a bit sci-fi, but — hey — it'd be sweet if it ever came to see the light of day.

Check out a closer shot of the arms at work after the jump.
