GrowingCities is the brainchild of Saranga Nakhooda and Devin Lafo, from Columbia University, and is a project that focuses on urban agriculture as an alternative to create a sustainable future for cities.  The research firm explores possibilities through architecture and design by which residents of urban areas can grow their own food, bringing them closer to natural food sources, while reducing cost and increasing quality. The highlight of GrowingCities’ design is making productive use of spaces that are normally unused to grow vegetables, such as the rooftop or the bottom of work tables.
