A community center where people can eat

Radical Food Landscapes – The Urban Living Experience by Reesha Sudra

“Radical Food Landscapes acts as a social life experiment to test whether this idea could be a viable and sustainable way of life in the city. This implies that residents live on site and actively participate in the maintenance of cultivation products.

“The construction program is to forage, cultivate and live, where the ultimate goal is to promote the ideology of the city as a place of production rather than mere consumption.

“The project offers a new way to grow and is testing the urban realm to see how we can move forward to increase food security in all regions of the world.”
