This competition is held annually as a 4-day charette. The program for 2011 was a farmer’s market in Whittier, California. The proposed solution is a zero-carbon footprint marketplace dubbed a Farmless Market. The food to be sold at the market is grown on site, with hyper-efficient hydroponic growing methods. This set up eliminates the need for the food to be transported, and can be grown anywhere regardless of climate or soil conditions. My entry was shortlisted to the top four nominees.
