The project aims towards a self-sufficient community coming from a new approach to urban agriculture and housing which seeks to shift the idea of the isolation between them and unite them. The main targets will be the community and the public. Creating forms and placing functions in a sustainable way to encourage the users to expand their knowledge and skills in farming using latest technologies in order to overcome the problem in the decrease of local food production and control of wasted water. Placing facilities that support the community will make the building act independently relying only on the surrounding environment. Growing vertically rather than the traditional horizontal way will save space and can go higher having the chance to produce more crops. Exploring private terraces for each housing module and public terraces for the users to function as a farming space will allow the community to keep growing for the purpose of working, living, and learning.
