Krystle & Spencer’s Wedding Livestream
July 18, 2015
The competition will challenge students to address the design, integration, and construction issues that must be considered for an urban commercial farm housed in a five story building with a basement area consisting of approximately 50,000 total square feet.
The project is more than a vertical urban farm. The Growing Power organization has become a national leader in providing neighborhood-based sustainable agricultural education. The building fills the need for space to support production, classes, meetings, meal preparation, offices, and on-site warehousing while serving as a model of ecological sustainability.
Growing Power has a vision to inspire communities to build sustainable food systems that are equitable and ecologically sound, creating a just world, one food-secure community at a time.
The building will include greenhouse spaces for a variety of plants, vegetables and herbs and hydroponic tanks for raising fish. The building will also be used as a training center with educational classrooms, a demonstration kitchen, food processing, and storage freezers. The building will include a retail space and a community kitchen. The concept includes a gathering area able to accommodate over 400 individuals on the second floor.
The broadcast will begin 15 min before the designated start time. Check the live chat below for updates.
