A couple years ago, Public Farm 1 — an urban farm installation by WORKac — opened in the courtyard of MOMA P.S.1. P.F.1 combined concepts of sustainable design and sustainable agriculture and was built with recyclable materials, powered by solar photovoltaics, and maintained by rain collection system.
In a book published by Princeton Architectural Press, Above the Pavement — The Farm! Architecture & Agriculture at P.F.1, which the publisher sent to us, Amale Andraos and Dan Wood, co-founders of WORKac, provide an inside perspective as to how P.F.1 came to be.
For more pictures, commentary, and information on the public farm, feel free to grab a copy of Above the Pavement — The Farm! on Amazon.
