Mowing to Growing: A Design Competition for Creating Productive Green Space in Cities

Mowing to Growing: A Design Competition for Creating Productive Green Space in Cities

One Prize is launching this competition in the context of larger issues concerning the environment, global food production and the imperative to generate a sense of community in our urban and suburban neighborhoods.

From Mowing to Growing is not meant to transform each lawn into a garden, but to open us up to the possibilities of self-sustenance, organic growth, and perpetual change. In particular, they seek specific technical, urbanistic, and architectural strategies not simply for the food production required to feed the cities and suburbs, but the possibilities of diet, agriculture, and retrofitted facilities that could achieve that level within the constraints of the local climate.

Calling all future-forward architects, urban designers, planners, engineers, scientists, artists, students and individuals of all backgrounds. For more information click here. Seen at Death By Architecture.
