Vincent Walsh is a PhD fellow at Manchester Institute for Research and Innovation. Investigating an interdisciplinary approach into Biospheric Urban Systems for the 21st Century City. In collaboration with MIRAID, The School of Science and the Environment, Manchester School of Architecture and Urban Splash.
Vincent Walsh is Founder & Research Director at Epoch Six Urban Research Laboratory in Salford, Manchester UK. Bridging the gap between theoretical and practical permaculture, biomimicry and biospheric research into the urban terrain. The Biospheric Foundation and Epoch Six Urban Research Laboratory has emerged as a collaborative, interdisciplinary, holistic and critical thinking research Centre.
Vincent Walsh developed a Eco Land & Property Portfolio throughout the recently recession. His first project was the Irwell House Salford. A building asset that lies in the heart of the City of Salford, a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, in North West England.
Research Fellow at EkoSence: Permaculture Research Eco Village in Croatia, Blatusa. Building hobbit homes & round house. Biological food and waste systems.
Biospheric Urban Systems, Multistrata Agroforestry Systems, food Production, Land management System, Biomimicry, Natural Woodland Ecosystems.
The Nectar Project
My research results will feed into the design of a dynamic interdisciplinary eco-biotech build in Manchester called the Nectar Project. Offering a sustainable design, which is “built from the bottom up”, creating a new visual and expressive urban form, the work advances the understanding of urban resilience and strengthens the architectural knowledge of solar design, intelligent façade manufacture, which encompass forest gardening, bio-mimicry, bioprocessing and biospheric systems – the synergy of which is key to true city growth in an age of climate change.
Part of the Nectar Project research will be working out how to convert the building to any latitude or location where urban density is high, bringing together social, commercial, economic, and ecological philosophy into one sphere.
My vision is that in the future, cities’ systems will become more biological on many levels and scales. Urban systems such as food and waste will mimic natural processes.
