Welcome to the Carrot City website! Carrot City is a research initiative that explores how design can enable the production of food in cities. It examines the relationships between design and urban food systems according to five categories: City, Community & Knowledge, Housing, Rooftops andComponents for growing. Building on a 2008 symposium Carrot City was conceived by students and faculty at the Department of Architectural Science, Ryerson University, as an exhibit held in early 2009 at the Design Exchange in Toronto. Since then, the initiative has expanded into a traveling exhibit that has been shown at a number of venues around North America, Europe and Africa. To date, content from this exhibit has been translated into French and Arabic. A book by the curators, based on the exhibit, was published by The Monacelli Press in September of 2011. A number of publications, presentations and symposia have also emerged from the initiative or profited from the wealth of information collected for it. The initiative aims to disseminate ideas and knowledge about best practices in urban agriculture. To that end this website contains a comprehensive repository of the Carrot City initiative and is intended as a research tool for anyone who is interested in the links between design and food in today's cities.

Keep your head down low or you might miss it all! Spread across the world pedestrian crossings are turning into bright and colorful works of art coming straight from the hands of renown artist Carlos Cruz-Diez (born 1923 in Caracas).
