Urban agriculture: The team has been selected for the market garden building in Romainville!

Having drawn up the architectural programme, athegram organised the tender to select the architecture team for the project : Ilimelgo, Secousses, Scoping, Etamine, Terr’eau ciel and Land’act. The market garden building will be a 24-metre-high vertical structure offering an exploitable surface area of over 1,000m². The building will also incorporate spaces appropriate to the project’s different purposes, including an educational greenhouse, a point of sale, and spaces intended especially for a diverse range of bio-intensive agricultural production.

This innovative project is the first of its kind in France. It comes in response to environmental concerns in towns and cities, focusing on short-cycle food production, fresh produce, a low environmental impact on residents and limited road transport. Delivery is scheduled for summer 2018. There is a good chance that it will have inspired others by then!
