What if water scarcity limits the supply chain in food production? The project addresses the future model of urban agriculture in one of the most dense cities in the world, Tokyo. Reimaging of a possible extreme scenario of drought as well as the rising in demand of food and less labour forced due to climate change. In parallel to the current urban issue, there is a shift in farming business as the land starts to become limited as well. Inviting the concept of ‘citizens as a farmer’, we believe that food can be grown and eaten with more responsible consumption.
In order to save the production of crops in extreme drought conditions, vertical garden and closed system loops are proposed as the answer to the more efficient way of using water in growing crops and self-irrigation systems. Providing farm space in the city context, we aim to provide a more calmer and softer resting place away from the crowded world whereas the underground water museum aims to educate and celebrate both the collection and the consumption of water.
