n a Live/Work Urban Farming complex for the Pigtown neighborhood in Baltimore, MD as a place that
builds community, educates about food, supports local economy, improves health and brings joy. The
Live/Work Urban Farm would provide housing, grow a variety of crops year-round, offer raw and prepared
food at an on-site market, manufacture food-based products and supply local food purveyors.
1. Origin – Study work/live and urban farming communities, collect precedent examples of various models
of growing food in an urban context and extract important organizational principles and underlying
systems. Conduct urban site analysis and identify priorities and strategies for project development. one example each part, with picture and explanation of the project.
On-screen Presentation – prepare a 5-minute visual
presentation that is visually compelling, clearly presented and organized following the categories below:
1-Scale: Large scale vs small scale urban farming, spatial requirements, yield, distribution systems
and environmental implications
2-Method: Conventional vs organic food, conventional vs vertical farming, greenhouse, hydroponic,
aeroponic, animal husbandry (chickens), beekeeping, etc.
3-Purpose: Food production, education, community development, research, tactical urbanism,
Site: Study the project sites located at Ostend and Wicomico Streets in Pigtown. Collect materials
and information including but not limited to physical context (site photographs, maps,
environmental considerations), legal context (zoning and building codes, design guidelines
and reviews), social context (demographics, amenities). Prepare a summary report on 8.5×11
spreads of all information gathered determining the allowed housing density, floodplain
limitations and other site design considerations. Assume I-MU zoning and 500-year flood
plane for all project parcels. one slide for this part because of the zoning and ator information
