This thesis is an investigation of the question, as a city’s population continues to rise, how can residential design assist in meeting the increased demand for food, water, energy and shelter? The typologies for the investigation of this problem are a sustainable residential complex and urban agricultural facilities. The site for this investigation is Fargo, ND. The Unifying Idea is that by combining sustainable residential design and on site agricultural practices, residential design could increase the awareness within cities which are experiencing rapid population growth to the issue of successfully meeting the rise in energy and shelter demands. The Project Justification is that sustainable residential design combined with urban agriculture is a vital component in ensuring the continuity of our species’ growth and survival.
