AGRITECTURE DESIGNER - COHORT
Future City Food Hub Cork
Taking inspiration from the real-world Cork Rooftop Farm, this concept imagines the conversion of a multistory downtown carpark into a food hub, featuring an indoor vertical farm and rooftop greenhouse in the same building as food processing and retail space. With Designer, FeedingCities were able to determine which crops would be most practical to grow in vertical farms versus greenhouses versus raised beds, producing a total annual yield of more than 100,000 pounds on-site.
