Urban Farm (Year 1)
My final project of the year. Our site was an obsolete square adjacent to Regent’s Canal, Hackney; we were asked to design a building which was well suited to a programme of our choosing. My programme revolved around the idea of urban growing and market space. Without delving too deeply the general idea of the programme was to involve the community in growing both traditionally and via hydroponics in a polycarbonate clad hot house; the produce is then traded within the market space inside and distributed along the canal through use of the building’s own wharf and canal boat.
