URBAN AGRICULTURE CENTER | 6 WEEKS | FALL 2016 |
Urban Agriculture and Farming is a versatile tool in the emergence of the post-industrial city.
Most city dwellers and residents however, are un-educated and un-trained in the practise of agriculture, which is a problem.
This final project for second year studio is a Center for Urban Agriculture, functioning as a resource for the local community of the north side of Pittsburgh,
and as an educational hub, allowing visitors to view and take part in the agricultural activities. It aims to draw in the local community with its plethora of growing space and maximize
agriculture education through the use of glass, open space and a community goat and chicken shed. Design parameters such as maintaining the urban block, narrowing the distinction between
the inside and the outside by using overhangs and cantilevers, as well as defining programatic space through floor material have been considered.
This project directly followed and was guided by the grow atlas, a visual analysis of the master planning of the north side of Pittsburgh.
