About

In a continuous effort to expand the knowledge surrounding urban and vertical farming and inspire professionals of all levels to be part of this movement, the Association for Vertical Farming (AVF) will be holding the first ever one of its popular US “Agritecture” workshops on June 24-25, 2016 in London, England.  Held during the London Festival of Architecture, this workshop will be co-organized by The Cass School of Architecture, Southbank Events, Blue Planet Consulting and The Association for Vertical Farming. It will not only spread valuable knowledge to encourage development of urban and vertical farms, but also generate powerful networks and relationships. 

Workshop Structure

Teams for this collaborative design workshop are handpicked to ensure a diverse and interdisciplinary approach. In addition, they aim to promote the support of higher education institutions through the inclusion of students. With one day to develop visionary but realistic concepts on how to integrate agriculture into cities and buildings, they will work on designing for a specific site in London.

Public Admission

Projects are presented to a public audience and a panel of esteemed judges in a closing ceremony.
