Looking to a more resilient future in the face of climate change and food production as ecological infrastructure, this studio explored where and how urban agriculture may be practiced in Seattle’s Rainier Beach neighborhood, notably on civic landscapes, towards a system of productive landscapes.The design process and proposals address issues of social justice and environmental health, and envision multiple benefits of healthy food and environments, ecological learning, community-building, and evolving beauty.
