La ville peut-elle nous nourrir ?

Une façon de se nourrir en ville. Agriculture urbaine. AgroCité et l'agriculture urbaine sur le campus - Impact Campus. L’association étudiante AgroCité a créé une méthode de plantation hydroponique verticale dans les couloirs du pavillon Paul-Comtois au cours des dernières semaines.

Les quatre variétés de laitues qui y sont plantées sont ensuite vendues au restaurant l’Intégral du pavillon Alexandre-Vachon. Un projet 100 % étudiant, dont l’agriculture urbaine constitue une première à l’Université Laval. Ayant vu le jour en janvier 2014, AgroCité accueille des étudiants de toutes les facultés. L’association rassemble actuellement sept étudiants sur le comité, sans compter la vingtaine d’entre eux qui travaillent sur le projet d’agriculture urbaine. Le président par intérim, Jean-Philippe Pomerleau, voit ce type d’alimentation comme la solution aux enjeux de la consommation au 21e siècle. La salade, et quoi d’autre ? De nombreux tests ont d’ailleurs été effectués avec certains aliments.

Opening this week is Hala Koszyki (which roughly translates as Basket Hall), which will be a 172,000-square-foot (16,000 sq m) project comprising 118,000 square feet (11,000 sq m) of retail space and restaurants and 54,000 square feet (5,000 sq m) of offices in Warsaw’s city center.

Food as Fashion: Reviving a Historic Food Hall in Warsaw, Poland

(Courtesy of Griffin Real Estate) Whereas once developers might have taken every opportunity to fill new city-center retail projects with boutique or high-street fashion brands, now food and drink are increasingly at the front and center of their strategy. Developers are quickly realizing that developments and destinations centered around food, such as Borough Market in London or Chelsea Market in New York City, increasingly draw large numbers of people, meaning they are profitable in and of themselves, but can also have significant benefits for nearby assets like offices. Register for the 2017 ULI Europe Conference But the history of Hala Koszyki is very much based around food. Axe offre complet. Les Parisculteurs / Site Officiel. Market Cities: Barcelona Offers a Hopeful Glimpse of the Future.

“Barcelona residents rank their public markets as the second most valuable public service after libraries” / Photo: PPS Ever since freezers and preservatives freed us from the need to shop at food markets on a daily basis, the focus has shifted almost entirely to convenience, resulting in the proliferation of supermarkets and box stores both inside and near cities.

In the process, food has been disconnected from the natural cycle of daily life. “There’s a lot of talk about food deserts today, but what many neighborhoods really have are place deserts,” says PPS’s Steve Davies. “As a result, we’re seeing a movement back to the idea of the Market City, with markets acting as catalysts for creating centers in neighborhoods that have lost their sense of place.” Market Cities are places with strong networks for the distribution of healthy, locally-produced food and other goods produced in local and territorial regions near cities.

Barcelona is perhaps the best example of a modern Market City. How Real Estate Developers and Urban Farmers Are Shaping the Future of Food. At the Stack House Apartments in Seattle’s now-trendy South Lake Union neighborhood, residents can walk out onto a terrace and pluck a tomato right off the vine.

In the South Bronx, an 8,000-square-foot hydroponic greenhouse atop an affordable housing development is creating jobs and food for the residents below—along with cooler summers and warmer winters. And in Somerville, Massachusetts, Assembly Row, a still-under-construction mixed-use development, features a small garden that serves several local restaurants and is a learning site for area employees. Environmentally conscious construction and building systems are old news at this point, but building-integrated food production is a relatively new, though growing, area of focus. And it’s led to a bit of a strange bedfellows situation: As both urban agriculture and real estate boom in a number of U.S. cities, real estate developers are looking to small-scale local growers to augment their plans.
