farm-e

Innovative construction who combine the efficacy with simplicity.

Modular construction with multifunctional design, easy to assemble and very adaptable.

Use Case

We have 3 type of users: Buyer, who will buy food directly from farm or for extra money can collect by self. Worker, who will have a new type of job direct in the city. Investor, who can rent space in our construction for producing food and share the profit with us.

Potential

Will make people more friendly with farm. Will ameliorate pollution and food loss. Will save virgin territory. Will promote healthy food. Will create new kind of jobs. Will change the view of farms. Will .............

Business Case

So, we have a construction who can be used for growing plants, deposit, selling and recycle. We will start with just 2 or 3 floors, using online investment and management we will give by rent the space from our building to investor (the investor need just to invest money, we will make all hard work), all spaces in our construction will have a predestination worker who will be paid by profit from the growing space. The investor profit will be shared with us, and when we will have enough money we will grow up floor by floor.

Objectives:

  1. Accelerating the process of transition from traditional farm to vertical farm.
  2. Shrink all farm processes in one place directly in the city.
  3. Change the view of vertical farm.

Our Mission

We have a huge challenge – to feed an entire world! About 80% of population live in cities. Our mission is to find a way how to provide the population with large amounts of healthy food and also keep an eye on a waist of energy and nature saving. As students of architecture major, we propose an architecture-engineering scientific project coming together to try to solve the issues of the world ( increasing population- about 9 billion by 2050; climate changes-drought, floods; energy, water, space/land waste; plant diseases; insects; unemployment). There are a lot of issues and problems how to farm outside. What we suggest as an idea is a high modern store building used as a greenhouse. Vertical farming is an indoor farming, that do not depend on weather, has no agricultural run off ( light, water, nutrition), allow the restoration for ecosystem. One important advantage is that there is no need for pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers, so here can be produced 100% Eco food. It provides a water safe for about 70-90% and about 90-100% of energy safe. The post harvest plant material assure animal feed. A tall farming greenhouse also assure people with work, so they can control the food safety and security.

Our Background

Why Wall-e? He discovers a lonely plant growing in a trash heap. The plant becomes a symbol of humanity’s return to Earth. Wall-e’s solar powered system is a mirror of the plant, which is solar powered life. What’s more is that Wall-e puts his new find into a boot. A plant – symbolizing life – is now in a work boot – symbolizing labor and productivity – it is a big of hope from amidst all the desolation. We are alike that little robot from the cartoon. As little as we are - students from a small country called Moldavia, trying to make a huge step up – a change! To create a project that will help to increase food production process on Earth. We want to build greenhouses especially in places where are not favorable conditions to plant in natural manner. This international contest gives us a great responsibility of informing our citizens, teachers, friends about „how to assure ourselves with food?” – not buying it from other countries. We could inform and motivate them how to run up a great, modern business, decrease unemployment and keep the nature safe. Only with ingeniously, care for people and thought for food, we can affect health, nutrition and food shortage all over the world!
