Urban Farming

Around 1995, Andrea Branzi defined the phrase weak-urbanization, which explored the hybridization between town and country. Several years have passed since, but the current trend has focused mainly on urbanization. On the contrary, the produce we eat gets grown far away from our urban centers, increasing our dependence on fossil fuels. It is a dire need of time to think post-urban. There is a great deal of potential to evoke an ad-hoc method of development, which is the right mix of urban and rural at the same time. The blurring of urban-rural dichotomy holds the key to ease the negative impact we have on the cities deemed irreparable.
