The fourth agriculture revolution is predominately situated in cities and encompasses the three pillars of sustainability—social, environmental, and economic. It is expected to bridge together people and the planet through eco-friendly food production systems in urban areas. Urban Agriculture is thus seen as a significant addition to the architectural vocabulary for future cities. This talk touches on the theme of architecture, agriculture, design and sustainability as we explore the potential of future technologies in the form of digital and additive manufacturing (3D printing) as a key enabler in integrating these concepts within sustainable urban agriculture. The talk explores the evolving field of urban agriculture architecture and presents the journey of the architectural evolving elements for planning a circular, sustainable, regenerative and productive future city.
