commercial, agricultural, Warehouse District of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Food Production, Filtration
This thesis is proposing a mixed use commercial and agricultural building within the Warehouse District of Minneapolis, Minnesota. With a population rise of 1100% in the last ten years and close proximity to areas in need of food justice action this building investigates the ability for buildings to act not only as shelter for people, but also as life springs for those living within its proximity. Food production, water filtration and education of the human connection to their role in nature are three of the tenants that “The Seed” addresses. The Seed will germinate the concept of Vertical Urban Farming as a strategy for implementation of food justice and security programs.
