Urban Agriculture Workshop

Set in New York City we explore the larger framework of urban agriculture and its effects on the environment architecture and urban design. Through this workshop we seek to rethink what is salubrious about the city, in both its forms and its life, by reflecting on the consequences of a fundamentally new level of sustainability.  We based our investigations on one illuminating hypothesis: in the future New York will grow to be self-sufficient in its critical necessities. In particular, we observed a series of specific technical, urbanistic, and architectural strategies not simply for the food production required to feed the city, but the possibilities of diet, agriculture, and retrofitted facilities that could achieve that level within the constraints of the local climate
