Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"A splendid new book from Monacelli Press marks the coming of age of urban agriculture — at least for the design world. Carrot City: Creating Places for Urban Agriculture is a timely reflection on design and urban food systems, and on the ways that agricultural issues are once again shaping urban spaces and buildings. At the heart of the book are over forty project case studies. These range from ambitious urban plans for the reintroduction of urban agriculture to our cities, to simple measures for growing food at home." —Design Observer

"Of late, growing vegetables in the city has become the preferred hobby for well-educated hipsters. But the modern concept of urban agriculture is much older and broader than its trendiness would suggest; for example, Ebenezer Howard's Garden City movement began in the late 1800s. The new book Carrot City: Creating Places for Urban Agriculture delves into the past and present of city farming, examining 40 recent and future projects that weave in edible greenery among the concrete. Authored by architects Mark Gorgolewski and June Komisar and urban agriculture expert Joe Nasr, the book highlights mostly Canadian and American projects, with a few from the U.K., the Netherlands, and one each from China and Argentina." —Residential Architect

Présentation de l'éditeur

Carrot City is a collection of ideas, both conceptual and realized, that use design to enable sustainable food production, helping to reintroduce urban agriculture to our cities. Focusing on the need and desire to grow food within the city to supply food from local sources, the contributions of architecture, landscape design, and urban design are explored.

Forty projects demonstrate how the production of food can lead to visually striking and artistically interesting solutions that create community and provide inhabitants with immediate access to fresh, healthful ingredients. The authors show how city planning and architecture that considers food production as a fundamental requirement of design result in more community gardens, greenhouses tucked under raised highways, edible landscapes in front yards in place of resource-devouring lawns, living walls that bring greenery into dense city blocks, and productive green roofs on schools and large apartment blocks that can be tended and harvested by students and residents alike.

an exciting perspective on urban ag 29 octobre 2012
Par wayne roberts - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I think the most exciting stuff going on with urban ag these days is the effort to cross boundaries into urban planning and design, green infrastructure and the like. We can combine forces between urban food production and sustainable urban design and beautification at the same time. This is one of the first works to get this and stimulate thinking about this new approach, which came to life at an Urban Agriculture Summit in Toronto in August of 2012(see the Summit blog for a "mannapesto" on this theme). Great artwork and well-done text make for a pleasant and uplifting read --wayne roberts
