3.4.3. Transparent Greenhouses
Transparent greenhouses are conceived as large span domes with a primary and secondary ring structure with steel profiles and transparent glass between these secondary structures. They would allocate different plantation to provide the food to the inhabitants of the settlement, but also the water and the oxygen in order to make the system a closed loop with a high regenerative level.
Access from the net of pedestrian corridors would be placed in the underground level and plantations would be organized in the upper floor showing up in the surface. In the underground water would be also recovered from the plants and initial storage of the vegetables produced. Wheeled access to the main wheeled ring would be provided in order to distribute the production to the other areas.
