http://www.fundedbyme.com/plantagon Plantagon launches its first City Farm out of ten until 2020 in the Swedish capital Stockholm. Plantagon invites the crowd to be part of a movement #feedingthecity. Under the famous building "DN-Skrapan" up to 70 metric tonnes of high quality food will be produced yearly - from a place previously being used as a storage room.
The average temperature in Stockholm in January is -3°C (27°F). For Marie Granmar and Charles Sacilotto it can be much warmer thanks to the greenhouse that blankets their home. “For example at the end of January it can be -2°C outside and it can be 15 to 20°C upstairs,” explains Sacilotto. He was inspired to build a house-in-a-greenhouse through his relationship with architect Bengt Warne who began designing the first Naturhus (Nature House) in 1974*. Originally Sacilotto looked for an empty lot to build an entirely new Naturhus, but he eventually settled on an old summer house on the Stockholm archipelago. Using Warne’s design, he covered the small summer house, plus an addition, in 4 millimeter glass. The footprint of the greenhouse is nearly double that of the home, leaving plenty of ...
Our latest Dezeen x MINI Living video features a proposal for an office tower that doubles as a vertical farm, by Swedish architecture firm Plantagon. Called the World Food Building, the project is currently under construction in the Swedish town of Linköping and is due to be completed in 2020. Half of the 60-metre-tall building will be occupied by offices, while the other half will be used as an urban greenhouse. In the greenhouse spaces, food will be grown using hydroponic farming – a method that involves submersing crops in nutrient-rich water. This technique is becoming increasingly popular with urban-farming experts as it doesn't require large areas of land to be successful. Plantagon says the building will demonstrate the company's approach to urban architecture. It calls this "a...

In 1870, Swedish settlers flocked to far northern Maine to farm - creating a unique colony where the Swedish language is still spoken in the 21st century. But the few who speak Swedish are dwindling and the language likely will die out with the thirty or so, mostly older residents, who still speak Swedish today. From the April Fool's Day jokes they played to the sadness they express over the disappearance of their farms, this film captures the lives of the Colony's Swedish speakers during this fascinating chapter of Maine history. Introduced in English, the interviews are conducted in Swedish by Maine Swedish Colony's Scandinavian scholar, Dan Olson. Subtitles for the interviews are provided in English, while the beauty of the numerous dialects spoken by the last of the Swedish speakers ...
