Smartcities + eco-warriors
27 November 2009
Thursday 25 February 2010
Professor C J Lim (UCL Bartlett School of Architecture)
Unchecked growth of our cities at the expense of agricultural land is threatening food security and sustainable urban development worldwide. Reframing the way people think about urban green space and the evolution of cities, CJ Lim explores how the notion of the smartcity can reintegrate agricultural practices and cultivated land within urban environments. The hybridization of agriculture and establishment of the city-dwelling farmer can lead to an association that is symbiotic, reducing carbon emissions and food shortage, in addition to less tangible but equally significant environmental and social benefits.
