The Utopian Design Collective presents Vertical Farms, March 17, Philly

The Community College of Philadelphia Architecture Program and the Utopian Design Collective are proud to present a Lecture by Dr. Dickson Despommier of the Vertical Farm Project. As an agricultural and environmental crisis looms, Dr. Despommier, a Columbia university luminary, has dared to dream. His vision of an urban agriculture presents an elegant solution to feeding the world, and confronts the challenge of creating sustainable urban space. The multi-disciplinary approach of his project combines environmental science, emergent materials technology and architecture to create the possibility of a radically green city. Join us as we learn more about the realities of Vertical Farms.
