The Building that Farms

[bracket] | Fritz Haeg

Published in "Bracket 1 [on Farming]", 2010

The building that farms is alive.

It is constantly changing. Plants grow, the sun moves, the wind dies down, the rain comes, the leaves decompose, the food ripens, and we are there to be a part of it. Are the squash ready to harvest? Is the rain barrel full? Is the sun out? Should we open the windows? It is interactive. It requires attention and welcomes us to be in dialog with the building and each other.

We are invited to become active participants in our environment and in our lives. The insidious zombie role of the passive consumer is not possible here.

The building that farms welcomes a new era of active participation.
