FARMARKET is a farming-retail combined space, an expandable system that can grow in size and intensity. Maximizing the potential of urban farming, FARMARKET can first take over existing shop buildings. Later, a bio-mimicked form replace the conventional rectangular box structure, and starts to connect and expand. Depend on the number of these tree-like “hubs”, FARMARKET can produce and sell different types of vegetables and fruits to the community. Furthermore, it showcases the process of growing and producing, revealing the story behind and intends to be educational.
