The Growroom: Exploring How Cities Can Feed Themselves

14.02.171 min read

The Growroom is an open-source, spherical garden that enables people to grow food locally and sustainably.

An urban farm pavilion and example of food-producing architecture, it was designed to trigger conversations about how to meet the rising demand for food by growing it in our cities.

We designed the Growroom in collaboration with architects Sine Lindholm and Mads-Ulrik Husum, and made it open source to encourage more people to build their own Growroom.

Local versions of the Growroom have since been built across the world as far afield as Helsinki, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Seoul and Sydney.
