During his lecture Mikkel BØGH from the Copenhagen-based architectural studio Effekt will talk about two architectural concepts which introduce the idea of urban farming.
The project Harbour Farm Effekt envisions revitalization of an old port and a process of an under-employed dock changing into urban fish farms where fish and seafood (such as oysters, clams and mussels) can be bred, harvested and served on site in top class restaurants. The concept includes: providing fully organic and sustainable solutions for generating energy, handling waste and growing vegetables, among others. The second design, ReGen Villages, is a model project for a self-sustainable off-grid community, which could produce all food for its inhabitants using aquaponics and would treat all waste internally. ReGen is currently being displayed at the Venice Biennale.
