Damien Chivialle has created an urban farm unit for agricultural use in city environments.
With the pollution and limited amount of space in major cities, it can be difficult to grow fresh, local produce. The unit, which is made out of a shipping container with a greenhouse roof addition, allows food to be farmed anywhere. The units use the aquaponics method in which fish feces are broken down in a sewage tank, then turned into fertilizer for the plants, which the plants then filter back into the water. In the past two years, three of Chivialle’s urban farm units have been built in Zurich, Berlin, and Brussels and we are hoping to see even more.
