Food-Producing Architecture Competition Seeks To Better Feed Cities
A design challenge in Copenhagen highlights the need and beauty of urban farming
The number of city dwellers is on the rise. The United Nations estimates that 66 percent of us will likely live in urban environments by 2050. Along with concerns about climate change, the distance much of our food has to travel has spurred a renewed interest in producing food where most people live. Space 10, a future living lab and exhibition space together with architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm, have co-created a space called ‘The Growroom’ that demonstrates the potential of urban farming.
