SPACE10 and Danish architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm have co-created a multi-sensory urban farm pavilion for people to smell, taste and enjoy aptly called the Growroom. The idea seeks to explore how cities can feed themselves through food producing architecture.
Filled with herbs, veggies, and edible plants from floor to ceiling, the Growroom, which is described as “food producing architecture” is an artistic exploration of the incredible potential of urban farming. With this idea, the designers seek to spark conversations about how nature can be brought back into cities, food can be grown locally and on smaller scales ultimately tackling the rapidly increasing demand for significantly more food in the future.

“At SPACE10, we envision a future where we grow much more food inside our cities. Food producing architecture could enable us to do so.”
— Carla Cammilla Hjort, Director of SPACE10
