Feed Your City: How Architecture and Farming Work Together

Feed Your City: How Architecture and Farming Work Together | City farming | Scoop.it

It’s easy to argue that architecture plays a part in the world of food; most restaurants are uniquely designed to better the dining experience after all. However, the architect’s ties to the industry go much deeper, and designers are beginning to revolutionize the way we see & manage food production.

 

As these cities grow, it is important that we continue to find new and innovative ways to provide for the populace. Vertical farming and urban agriculture offer relief in metropolitan environments, helping to reduce the pressure of public food supply while also changing our traditional approach to food production.

The Urban Farming Technique That Will Revolutionize the Way We Eat

The Urban Farming Technique That Will Revolutionize the Way We Eat | City farming | Scoop.it

Aquaponics uses fish to create soil-less farms that can fit into cities much easier.


Urban farming today is no longer a hobby practiced by a few dedicated enthusiasts growing food for themselves. It has become a truly innovative field in which pioneering ventures are creating real, robust, and scalable solutions for growing food for large numbers of people directly at the point of consumption. This is great news not only for urban designers, architects, and building engineers, but also for residents and communities that want to increase food security and become more resilient to climate change.

Visit the article link for more information and details on the practice of aquaponics, natural resource efficiency and the potential for large-scale urban cultivation...

Anji Connell's curator insight, April 10, 2013 10:53 PM

'Rooftops present a great opportunity for farming; they are large, unexploited spaces within the city. Most commercial rooftops are also perfectly fit for the technical challenges, in terms of building physics, zoning laws, and system integration with the host building. A standard commercial rooftop in a Western city is about four times the size of our test farm, which means it could produce up to 20 tons of vegetables and four tons of fish — an annual harvest to feed 400. A significant part, if not the entire annual consumption, of fresh fish and vegetables for a building’s tenants could be served through its roof.'

What a great article, this is something that everyone should read. Make sure you read it all before showing your class, so you can answer any questions they have.

Its weird to think the world will be in another ten years time...What will they think of next?

AWESOME!!!

The Impact of Urban Farming in New York

The Impact of Urban Farming in New York | City farming | Scoop.it

Urban farming is a sustainability movement that is giving new purpose to rooftops, patios and unused space. The beauty of urban farming is that it not only produces an abundance of organic, locally grown food, but also has a social, economic and communal impact.

 

Urban farming has the potential to become a global green evolution, improving the economy, sustainability and health of our urban communities. From North Minneapolis and Milwaukee to Cairo and Montreal, urban farms and gardens are sprouting up as a solution to maximize the use of natural resources such as solar energy, advocating healthy lifestyles and even teaching job skills. 

From rooftop-grown organic herbs to brownstone backyard tomato plants, urban farming is creating green utopias in otherwise unused or abandoned metropolitan spaces.

 

Read further for more information on urban farming as an agricultural revolution, aiding the change of global urban landscapes.

Max

Rooftop spaces in New York are starting to become used for urban farming and are resulting in many benefits. They maximize the use of space in the city, and help support healthy lifestyles within the city. They also provide another source of income for some of the many people that live in it, boosting the economy.

Urban Farming: an Architect’s Answer to 'Green'?

Urban Farming: an Architect’s Answer to 'Green'? | City farming | Scoop.it

Sustainable. Local. Natural. Green. Architects talk about these words all the time but what do they really mean?


'To present the concept of Urban Farming, I’ve collected images of existing urban farms that are already “digging into” (on/over/through) the built environment – doing amazing things for food, people, cities, communities, and sustainability –  as well as conceptual urban farming architecture – projects which begin to rethink the word “farm,” especially in the urban environment, and offer a very bold response to the question, “What is Green Architecture?” Some of these ideas may seem pretty far-fetched, but I’ll bet not many people thought we’d be farming all over rooftops in NYC either! And they’re not only doing it, they’re doing it sustainably + successfully. Architecture could stand to learn a thing or 2 from these urban farms…'

Lenni Morkel-Kingsbury's curator insight, November 9, 2013 4:35 PM

RE comment that some of these ideas seem pretty far fetched...sad that we feel we need to temper ideas with statements  like this.Once upon a time landing on the moon and having personal computers also seemed far fetched. Thinking beyond current boundaries is what is needed to tackle issues of food production and sustainable living for the future , now!

 

"Naively ambitious, maybe. But as a twitter-mate noted, “creating food AND jobs and making productive use of vacant land and changing the urban landscape in a huge way!” is in my opinion extremely exciting and worth every effort of that ambition!"

 

.....I couldn't agree more!

Let' s get inspired and figure out how to make  far fetched  ideas work and work sustainably and effectively.

Urban Farming is Growing in Shanghai, China

Urban Farming is Growing in Shanghai, China | City farming | Scoop.it

After years of relentless growth, Shanghai, China is entering a new phase of environmentally sustainable development, where issues like urban farming are becoming more prominent. 

 

Increasing urban density, competition for land and a rising demand for food from the burgeoning middle class, Shanghai needs to ensure that the opportunity to produce food in the city is possible.

The main challenge facing urban farming in Shanghai remains to be a lack of awareness. Without the proper education and know-how, the urban farming movement is unlikely to take shape on a large scale, and with very little outdoor space available, few options are available to grow food. Many residents have turned to creative land-intensive solutions such as balcony or rooftop farming to produce fresh, organic, healthy and cheap foods...
