urban farms collaborative

Team: Brigitte Kerr, Master Planning and Architectural Design, sDC; Jamie Miller, Architectural Design and Shipping Container Design Consultant, Urban Fabric Architecture; Laura Staniland, Urban Public Policy and Planning and Multimedia Development, CivicsLab, LLC.

A desolate lot, enclosed with LED illuminated fencing, sets the tone for a project of dichotomies. Sited in the middle of the Curtis Park Neighborhood, just south of Downtown Denver’s core, Denver Housing Authority (DHA) has designated an entire city block as a Sustainability Park, exploring sustainable construction as it relates to energy production/efficiency, local food production, water management and developing quantifiable metrics for these new cutting edge products and practices. 

sDC in partnership with Urban Fabric Architecture led the first step of this multi-phase development, master planning the Urban Farm Collaborative (UFC) site and designing infrastructure integrating recycled shipping containers. 

The precise program requirements of UFC state: “sheltering people from the sun's fever while simultaneously maximizing it’s presence on plants” balances the diverse needs of the sustainability park. Creating a solution of it's own dichotomies: where solar orientation interface with the city grid; nature meets technology; and farmers, designers, and developers rise up, unite and realize the vision of Denver’s largest Urban Farm.
