TerreFarm Design+Grow Summer 2009
 
   
Start Date 03/08/2009
 
End Date 28/08/2009
 
Location New York 
 
Country United States 
 
Description Summer Lab for students, architects, scientists, artists, and individuals of all backgrounds to explore the larger framework of urban agriculture and its effects on the architecture and urban design of NYC.

Set in New York City, TerreFarm Lab seeks 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 will base our investigations on one illuminating hypothesis: in the future New York will grow to be self-sufficient in its critical necessities. In particular, we will observe 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.

This summer approximately 35 researchers will gather in New York City for 4 weeks of intense creative exploration. The TerreFarm Lab provides a unique opportunity for students to learn from established professionals in an experimental design/grow urban farm. The Interaction of students, builders, and architects is encouraged by the intense environment of The Metropolitan Exchange (MEx), located in downtown Brooklyn.
