FARM HD – Hong Kong Symposium
Date & Time05.04.2017
13:00 - 18:00
LocationExhibition Zone F, 1/F, AIT Building, CUHK
As part of the FARM HD programme at RMIT University, this symposium presents research and design projects that explore the architectural and urban opportunities and limitations for high-density farming in Hong Kong.
The projects experiment with alternative sites for urban farming (e.g., rooftops and interiors) through advanced engineering systems, and examine the socio-economic connections between farming, food, living and working in the city. By gathering and disseminating the research outcomes, the symposium aims to foster discussion about food security and urban food production, and to recognise the contributions the built environment disciplines can make to these critical issues.
The FARM HIGH DENSITY project aims to continue and deepen conversations about urban farming in our future cities. FarmHD – Melbourne Symposium is held subsequently on 10 August 2017, at RMIT Design Hub, gathering international experts and designers to propose new ideas for the pressing issue of food security, local food accessibility and practical architectural approaches for high-density agriculture.
