The drinking culture in the UK makes alcoholic beverage industry a billion pound
industry. The interest of this project lies in the manufacturing process of these
The project aims to use the manufacturing process to power and develop a self
sustaining tower. This would involve the tower housing a farm which produces
starch based plants that would be used in a dry-milling process to produce
ethanol. The project intends to use this alcohol produced as a form of fuel to
generate electricity for the tower while also producing some for the purpose of
consumption and sales. By using the method of hydroponic farming, the tower is
able to create a vertical farm which would reduce the footprint of the project and
reduce the strain on the site.
The project also intends to use the social aspects of this drinking culture to design
spaces and accommodation that promote the idea of socialisation and community with the farming aspect of the tower at its centre.
