on fall 13

Fall ’13 addressed the urban farm and the issue of food deserts, or communities without access to fresh produce. The purpose of the studio was to examine an existing building, which was once a shoe factory, and to apply concepts of adaptive reuse; we basically took the existing building and refit it with a program that aligns with our client’s vision. The effort with the client was collaborative, as he also has an architecture degree, and we pushed the ideas of aquaponic systems to develop the program and project. The attached site is the fruits of my group’s labor.
