Food Field Farmhouse is a slow-growing living unit, made possible by an open collaboration between designers, farmers, and community members. The project makes no effort to speculate on proper tactics for Detroit’s revitalization but rather facilitates a collaborative offensive of urban agriculture, planning, design, and construction from the bottom-up. Food Field Farmhouse is designed for off-the-grid performance. A butterfly roof system acts as a water harvesting system that will gravity feed water to the field and modest living quarters. The 40-foot shipping container is slowly evolving into architecture that facilitates residency, agricultural production and community supported agriculture.
