AGRITECTURE: Blurring the Line Between Farm and City
05:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Erdy McHenry Architecture
915 N Orianna St
Join Erdy McHenry Architecture for our annual DesignPhiladelphia celebration!
As the world population is set to approach 10 billion by 2050, humanity reckons with an agricultural infrastructure that is not only insufficient - but also wasteful, polluting, and prone to drought and famine.
Agritecture explores the inevitable assimilation of two worlds through aspiration, investigation and execution: from forward-thinking greenhouses in Ohio to sky-scraper farms in the UK.
Join us for a lively panel discussion with featured speaker Dickson Despommier and urban farmers at Philly Microgreens, as we examine food security issues from agro to agora followed by a cocktail reception with our guests and panelists.
