Urban farming is a big part of the design. This is a method of using space to create growing areas for herbs, spices, and vegetables. Urban agriculture not only improves soil quality, but also reduces air pollution. Most importantly, it produces food.
By providing spaces for agriculture and gardening in urban areas, the plan also offers opportunities for economic benefits. The produce, spices and other produce harvested from these urban mini-farms can become an additional source of income. Roof terraces and small urban greenhouses create space for urban agriculture and create a unique look.
The design also includes spaces for housing, offices, sports facilities and areas for cultural activities. The distinct silhouette of the entire project is designed to resemble the shape of canyons. The design of Garden City follows the natural curve of Lac des Minimes and its natural islands.
In the garden city, all courtyards, roofs and public spaces will be used for cultivation and breeding. In fact, the breeding and dairy production areas will be at the heart of the action in the city. During this time, everyone will have the chance and the space to grow all kinds of crops including corn, beans and herbs.
This design shows how urban environments can become more eco-friendly and self-sufficient in the future. How can urban agricultural spaces like this impact society, climate and health? This project can serve as a case study to help answer these questions. The plan is a design created by the architectural firm Rescubika. The company describes Garden City as “created by man for man” and says it will improve the cityscape by “adapting it to our new way of living in the city”.
