Pruning AAgrotecture

Most readers have no doubt seen Alexander Trevi's great quartet of projects in an ongoing series on AAgrotecture over at Pruned. Part of a Vertical Studio from the Architecture Association (AA) in London taught by Nannette Jackowski and Ricardo de Ostos - the purpose was to address a central question: "Can extremes of programmatic effectiveness blend with the fragility of human habitat?"

This complexly simple question illicited a number of interesting responses. The four projects that are featured are worth a thorough reading and viewing... and I won't duplicate Trevi's excellent text, but wanted to show some of the great imagery of these projects... Be sure to check out the full posts via the title links (all images via Pruned):

Kings Vineyard London





Aquaculture





Farmacy





And check out Jackowski and de Ostos new Pamphlet Architecture 29: Untold Stories... could be the best one since, well, the last one by Smout and Allen... I'm ordering one, right, now.
