This episode we hear a presentation from Fred Labbe from his presentation at the BAQUA convention in London in December. In 2017 his proposal for a modular aquaponic urban farm was shortlisted at the World Architecture Festival 2017, taking place in the November. The project is an ongoing research collaboration between Flanagan Lawrence Architects, the British Aquaponic Association (BAQUA), the Bristol Fish Project, and Expedition (as part of the Useful Simple Trust’s work on the circular economy). The vertical modular farm is designed to make use of available growing space on the south facades of large urban sheds, to be built from reused steel elements and involves a number of closed-loop principles: between fish and plants, and turning food waste into sustainable fish feed.
