This September a newly opened Concrete Plant Park hosts the Waterpod – a floating sustainable habitat and navigable living space that showcases the connection between the environment and art. Before coming to the Bronx, this barge has docked at several piers in Manhattan and other boroughs in New York City. The Waterpod is open to the public and features a series of environmental features, including a hydroponic growing system, chicken coop, biological graywater remediation tanks, food compost, soil-based gardens, solar photovoltaic panels, and living quarters. This project is similar to the Science Barge, a sustainable urban hydroponic farm, the Waterpod represents a more self-sustaining, autonomous living system, and a great idea for water-based nomadic communities.
