agri-housing: a synergy between agriculture and domestic living
Urban agritecture is a design concept that speculates on a new urban order, a social vision that addresses
contemporary problems of urbanism with emphasis on the pressing issue of servicing the city dwellers with
fresh food . A synergy between agriculture and domestic living the ‘Bays agri-precinct’(2008) and the ‘Agri-Housing’ student cooperative (2009) projects create an affordable and sustainable living system approach. This design proposition in its form and program seeks to create a place for socio-enviro ecological belonging between the building occupants and the locals through the cultivation of food for sustaining city living.
