La libélula


Formulado como un diseño conceptual basado en un edificio urbano sostenible, la libélula compone un rascacielos que disfruta las ventajas de la vida rural. Ubicada en el borde sur de la isla Rooselvelt, se constituye como un organismo íntegramente autosuficiente de 132 pisos, que aprovecha los recursos naturales para abastecerse de energía. Pero además, en sus alas contiene 28 tipos de campos agrícolas que producen frutas, hortalizas, granos, carne y lácteos, extremando el concepto de granja vertical.


Un programa mixto formado por oficinas y vivienda se dispone en las dos torres principales. Ambas torres se orientan simétricamente y pueden expandirse en vertical, de tal manera que viviendas y oficinas se intercalan entre jardines y granjas naturales. Las alas de metal y vidrio imitan el exoesqueleto de la libélula para otorgar la protección necesaria a las actividades que se desarrollan en el interior, estableciendo las condiciones de viento y sol apropiadas para lograr adecuados niveles de nutrientes que permitan la germinación de los vegetales y la vida de los animales.

El espacio creado entre las caras transparentes de cada ala del edificio acumula aire caliente para abastecer al complejo durante el invierno, complementado por un sistema de ventilación natural que, asociado a una planta de evaporación de agua, enfría el aire durante el verano. Los paramentos verticales están diseñados para filtrar el agua de lluvia y tratarla orgánicamente para reutilizarla en el riego de los vegetales.

Las zonas agrícolas se ubican lindantes a las viviendas y tienen su propio sistema de elevadores. De esta forma, el flujo de movimiento de los huertos se canaliza independiente del movimiento cotidiano de los habitantes del complejo. Los espacios para oficinas e investigación son los más alejados y también poseen un sistema independiente de elevadores verticales. Todo el sistema circulatorio permite distribuir el flujo de movimiento en forma ordenada dentro de los 350.000 m2 y los 700 metros de altura del edificio.

“En esta articulación entre el manifiesto teórico y la formalización de un proyecto que lo corporiza es donde se expresa de manera más elocuente la naturaleza sustancial y contemporánea del trabajo de Callebaut. Es también en ese encuentro entre teoría y práctica donde pueden establecerse vínculos con otras discusiones y otros grandes aportes disciplinares, realizados a lo largo del siglo pasado. Los síntomas de la contemporaneidad se expresan en la obra de Callebaut y en ella parecen resonar los ecos familiares de otras vanguardias, como alguna vez fueron las propuestas de Sant´Elía, Archigram, Amancio Williams, Rem Koolhaas y tantos más.

El análisis de la obra de Callebaut nos permite retomar una de las cuestiones, presentadas al inicio del trabajo: la referida a la actual relación entre teoría y práctica. Como muchas veces hemos planteado este vínculo ha sido, desde sus orígenes, inestable, cambiante. Y, como se ha mencionado, pareciera que en la actualidad hay una inclinación de la balanza hacia la cuestión de la práctica en detrimento de la especulación teórica” Julio Valentino, Carlos G. Giménez y Marta Mirás, “Una práctica teórica. Las propuestas de V. Callebaut” Instituto de arte americano e investigaciones estéticas N° 223, agosto de 2018

Formulated as a conceptual design based on sustainable urban building, the dragonfly composes a skyscraper that enjoys the benefits of rural life. Located on the south edge of Roosevelt Island, is constituted as an entirely self-sufficient body of 132 flats, which harnesses natural resources for energy supplies. But also in their wings contains 28 types of agricultural fields that produce fruits, vegetables, grains, meat and dairy products, with extreme vertical farm concept.

A mixed program consisting of offices and housing are available in the two main towers. Both towers are oriented symmetrically and can be expanded vertically, so that homes and offices are interspersed with gardens and natural farms. The metal and glass wings mimic the exoskeleton of the dragonfly, giving the necessary protection. They also set the wind and sun conditions appropriate to achieve adequate levels of nutrients that allow germination of plants and animal life.

The space created between the transparent faces of each wing, collects hot air to supply the resort during the winter. A natural ventilation system associated with evaporation plant water cools the air during the summer. All walls, rainwater filter to treat organic and reuse for irrigation.

Agricultural areas are located adjoining the houses and have their own set of elevators. Thus, the flow of movement of orchards independent channels daily movement of the inhabitants of the resort. The office space and research are the most remote and also have an independent system of vertical lifts. The building covers an area of ​​350,000 m2 at a height of 700 meters.

A proposed development that leverages available technology for alternatives to resolving the need for food in densely populated areas, reducing the impact caused by the distances.
