an indoor rainforest that is climate controlled by lancaster's municipal waste. located in the walls of the structure are basically massive fancy compost containers that are able to receive leaves, grass cuttings, soil, waste food, paper and some textiles from the city's residents. the decomposition of these components is what maintains the climate. ever turn a compost pile in the middle of winter and see steam rise? these guys f**kin rock,



  1. Thank you laymen for the post and info!

  2. Interesting concept. Lancaster, PA? I wonder if the massive fancy compost containers would rotate the compost...
