AGRow House

AgRow House is a vertical community with spaces to grow, eat, and sell crops; to raise livestock; and, to live sustainably. The design stems from a commitment to creating a culturally relevant building by identifying the traditional New York Row House as a typological reference. By hybridizing the Row House with a vertical farm program, AgRow House can become a prototype – not only for the given site, but also as a prototype for modifications to existing vernacular structures. Vertical farming is envisioned to become an integral part of the urban living experience. Each “unit” within the vertical community combines a customizable vertical farming system with an efficient apartment layout.
