‘At Space10, we envision a future where we grow much more food inside our cities. Food producing architecture could enable us to do so.’ – says Carla Cammilla Hjort, Director of Space10. Photography: Rasmus Hjortshøj.

Space10 and architects Mads-Ulrik Husum & Sine Lindholm co-created a stunningly beautiful urban farm that was exhibited at CHART ART FAIR in Copenhagen this weekend. With the Growroom, Space10 wants to spark conversations about how we can bring nature back into our cities, grow our own food and tackle the rapidly increasing demand for significantly more food in the future.

Filled with herbs, veggies, and edible plants from floor to ceiling, The Growroom is an artistic exploration of the incredible potential of urban farming.

Space10 envision a future where we start to grow much more food inside our cities. In complete self sustaining eco systems, that supply us with super fresh food of highest quality. All year round. Food that tastes better, is healthier for us, more nutritional and doesn’t put massive pressure on our dwindling supplies of fresh water nor our environment.
