Our project of a floating farm stemmed from a reflection on the future of agriculture in urban environments. Its aim is to put at the local producers’ disposal a barge with greenhouses for the cultivation of fruit and vegetables, a stall for a cow or sheep, a henhouse and even a part time beehive. All those spaces would be organized around a café and terrace.
