A taste of the future with Refarmed - Edible cities, Meyers Madhus and The Farm
Come try the future of food with a lunch prepared by The Farm’s food designer in residence, Simon Perez, and Martin Marko Hansen from Meyers Madhus. The lunch will follow the explorations of SPACE10’s lab, The Farm, about alternatives for producing and distributing food in urban environments.
The lunch will be followed by a talk on edible cities by Refarmed - Edible Cities, a studio developing building integrated agri- and aquaculture.
By integrating vegetables and fish production into buildings we can save space, rental costs and increase building value while producing hyperlocal and daily fresh produce year round. Their current project aims to transform the roof of Fields Shopping Center into a high- tech incubator and organic farm, harnessing the waste energy that the building releases.
The event is free but don't forget to reserve a spot. There’s only 20 spots and it’s first comes first serve.
About SPACE10 + CAFx
Together with CAFx, SPACE10 have curated a 10 day program which acts as an active exploration into current trends within architecture and urbanism with focus on how to approach the future development of cities and society.
This program looks at the importance of social engagement within urban and architectural projects. We will discuss the prospect of how the existing fabric of a city can be used as a resource, the importance of community engagement and how to create liveable cities with response to food, technology and ideas of sustainability.

About Refarmed - Edible cities
Buildings consume large amounts of energy. They emit heat, CO2, sewage and produces waste. Refarmed develop economically and environmentally sustainable solutions for recycling of buildings’ excess resources.
The concept is simple: They are developing low impact building-integrated food productions that utilize the surplus energy buildings already produce. The result is: Visible CSR and reducing energy consumption and environmental taxes for both the farm and the main building. The foods are marketed locally.
