Cultivate: A Vertical Solution
More InformationShow full item record
This thesis titled “Cultivate: a Vertical Solution” will address the question, “How can architects stop suburban sprawl?” The typology of this project will be a 535,234 sqft high-rise mixed-use vertical farm in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. This building will use the site vacated by Brookdale Mall after it’s demolition. The theoretical premise explored in this research will be suburban sprawl and hydroponic farming techniques. The project justification is that architects need to create an inviting alternative to sprawl that requires fewer outside resources.
