THESIS QUESTION: “Can a ‘Research and Training Facility’ become a catalyst for the integration of ‘Vertical Farming’ within the city?”


405 - ISSUE - LACK OF FOOD & DESTRUCTION OF LAND Earth and Cultivation - Infographics RC

Earth Surface Infographics Follow up on research undertaken in “403 - Thesis Preparation”, the data is demonstrated in simple infographics which explains the current cultivation rate of the planet. The 29% of Earth’s surface is currently land. Out of the 29%, 36% is currently used for cultivation purposes (Modern Agriculture) and out of this 36%, only 2% is not in production mode. This is one of the key elements that help grow produce to feed the current population on Earth.

405 - ISSUE - LACK OF FOOD & DESTRUCTION OF LAND Population Growth - Infographics RC

Feeding the Exploding Population Growth Jonathan Foley states that, even with the current crop land on Earth, we are in risk for food gap by 2050.This is due to the increase in population that is estimated to grow from 6.9 billion people in 2015 to 9.6 billion in 2050. Comparing this to the amount of produce grown, we are required to be producing almost twice as much food in 2050 as we do currently. Reference: The Population Conundrum - Jonathan Foley

Population 2015 6.9 Billion

Population 2050 9.6 Billion

Food Gap Risk in 2050 70%


405 - ISSUE - LACK OF FOOD & DESTRUCTION OF LAND Modern Agriculture - Deforestation & Climate Change RC

Agricultural Land Expansion Modern Agriculture requires a huge amount of crop land to maximise their production line. Therefore in order to prevent the food gap risk, it is required to increase the cultivation area. This is only achieved through Deforestation method. Annually, the Earth is loosing about 19,000 to 39,000 sq miles of forestry just to increase agricultural production. This method is resulting Modern Agriculture to be a dominant force behind environmental threats, such as climate change, biodiversity, loss and degradation of land and fresh water. Therefore, this system must be replaced with an alternative strategy that is environmentally friendly and sustainable. Reference: The Brundtland Report ‘ Our Common Future’ Kyoto Protocol

Deforestation Expansion of Agriculture

Potential Crop Land 19,000 - 39,000 sq mile Forest is being lost annually


405 - SOLUTION - MINIMISE LAND & MAXIMISE FOOD Increase in Population & Increase in Food Demand RC

Vertical Farming Tower The amount of produce grown by the Modern Agriculture is based on the amount of cultivation land available. The ambition is to increase the production rate while maintaining or reducing the amount of land required. Vertical Farming is the most effective method for agriculture as it does not require as much water, land and energy as Modern Agriculture. Instead of growing food on horizontal fields, Vertical Farming provides the opportunity to grow food using hydroponics/aquaponic systems stacked up on top of each other. The additional aim, following up on with this system, is to provide self-sustainable towers that are mainly dedicated for Vertical Farming .

405 - SOLUTION - MINIMISE LAND & MAXIMISE FOOD Increase in Demand for Food & Increase is Towers

Farming Tower Strategy One of the major issues about food production, is the distribution of these produce. If a produce has been grown in different geographical location, then the value of the product increases, due to the import cost. The idea of ‘Vertical Farming Towers’ reduces or even discards the additional cost for transport of goods. Therefore the locals near a ‘Vertical Farming Tower’ can consume valuable goods for cheaper price. Making it economically efficient. The ratio for the construction of ‘Vertical Farming Towers’ works strategically. If the city decides to expand, a tower depending on the population growth is also constructed along with this expansion. These towers need to be constructed with strong but minimal materials in order to facilitated the tower construction when it’s required elsewhere. The minimal material would only support the agriculture growth therefore there will be very minimal human activity within this space. The ratio can be applied once again if the city continues to grow. This way as the city grows it contributes towards the increase for food demand, creating the opportunity for more vertical towers to be erected. The diagram on the right represents the strategy mentioned. The tower could also be used not only to provide nutrients but also to help generate power. Making it ecologically and economically efficient.

Precedents - Vertical Farming Tower in Urban Areas The main precedents aspect that was taken into consideration was understanding the visualisation of vertical farming towers implemented into urban areas. The precedents used help to demonstrate how the idea of the ratio “Increase in Demand for Food = Increase in number of Farming Towers’

405 - CLIENT GrowUp Urban Farms

GrowUp Urban Farms GrowUp Urban Farms is a private organisation which is dedicated to convert abandoned warehouses and facilities into a vertical farming industry. They are committed to feed the locals in a way that is positive for community as well as the environment, today and for the future. They are mainly producing salads and herbs using the vertical farming technologies, with the aim of changing the perspective of the way food is grown and distributed. Their goal is to provide a facility that is more then sole purpose of farming. They want to reconnect people using social spaces as well as providing the locals with the knowledge of vertical farming.


405 - METHODOLOGY Process

Teaching and Integrating GrowUp Urban Farms want to provide a facility that integrates the idea of Vertical Farming and also offer a new skill to the locals. The Integration will help locals understand the importance and the benefits of Vertical Farming whereas the teaching will provide a new skill for the individuals. This skill will broaden their vision and it will open up new job opportunities for them. The diagram below represents the process of this idea connecting both integration and teaching into the production, allowing users to start growing produce. This is later on processed, distributed and consumed. During consumption, the aim is to make locals understand that this system provides, nutritious, cheap and local food, influencing them to visit the Research & Training Centre.

Seminars The teaching is achieved through series of Lectures, Workshops and Labs

Skill Gained Opening new opportunities for the local Community.

405 - LYRA TOWN - SITE LOCATION District & Site Consideration

Site Location Lyra-Town is split into five sections which are highlighted on the site plan below. In order to achieve the best potential for the proposal of Research and Training Facility it must to be located in a site that allows the best connection between each district. This also helps with distribution aspects, allowing the produce to be distributed easily within the whole city. Therefore, District 2 was seen as the most ideal location for the proposal.

405 - GROWUP URBAN FARMS Client’s Requirements

RESEARCH AND TRAINING FACILITY WITH VERTICAL FARMING TOWER The client requires a strict accommodation spaces for a facility that will enhance the local area socially, ecologically and economically. Having a facility that will be used for vertical farming will reduce the possibility of Food Gap Risk that is estimated at 70% for 2050. However, the client requires a facility that holds more then its sole purpose of agricultural production. It will also need to be a facility that will help integrate the idea of vertical farming within a city and it’s community. Nevertheless, they require an architecture that will also help enhance the social aspects of the local residents. The required proposal is split into three sections which are demonstrated below.

PRODUCTION

TEACHING

VISITORS

Vertical Farming Tower (Economy)

Integration of Farming (Ecology)

Local Community (Social)

The ‘Vertical Farming Tower’ is mainly dedicated to food production. The idea of agriculture growing vertically, instead of on horizontal land eliminates the need for the increase of cultivation land. This reduces the amount of deforestation that is currently used for modern farming.

The second element will be a ‘Research and Training Facility’ that will accommodate activities aiming to change the perspective of local community towards farming. This will help integrate the idea of vertical farming within a city. The facility will hold workshops, seminars, lectures and laboratories where new skills can be provided to the local community.

The client’s requirement for visitors will also be accommodated in the ‘Research and Training Facility’. These spaces will include Museum/ Exhibition where it will display post agricultural tools and methods before they are taken into an indoor tropical rainforest.

Even though the tower will be dedicated for farming, it will still require space for office procedures and social activity. The accommodation requirement is as follows: - Entrance & Lobby - Office Spaces - Workspace - Payroll Office - Director’s Office - Meeting Room - Several floors dedicated for Farming only. - Buffer Zone - Social Space with Panoramic View

The accommodation requirement is as follows: - Separate Access & Lobby - Workshops - Small - Medium - Large - Meeting Rooms - Study Space - Contained Laboratories - Small - Medium - Large - Cold Room Storage spaces

The idea is to create an atmosphere internally that is different to the local geology while giving the sense of being outside. The atmosphere is enhanced with a restaurant and a bar, allowing the visitors to enjoy their food and social activity in an exclusive space. The accommodation requirement is as follows: - Entrance / Reception - Exhibition/Museum Space - Tropical Rainforest - Bar with Waiting Lounge - Restaurant

CITY CONNECTION

The aim with the proposed masterplan is to create a strategy that minimises the impact on nature and to promote nature reserve. Extending the water towards the city, raised the possibility of creating a natural habitat for aquatic life to grow and live. The green spaces follow the same principle to enhance, to maintain and extend the vegetation level within the city boundaries. The strategy diagram on the right illustrates this methodology and demonstrates the connection between water, forestry and the urban city.
