Hortus: Digitally-augmented Hydroponics

Carlo Ratti | Carlo Ratti Associati

At FICO Eataly World | CRA

An interactive pavilion that matches hydroponic farming with digital technology. At HORTUS, each person can plant a seed in a shared hydroponic garden, and then monitor the growth of her own plant from home. HORTUS allows each person to share the experience of a farmer, fostering a collective reflection on the future of agriculture in an increasingly urbanized world.
