Pasona 02 is a 1 sq. km. farm in the basement of a 27-storey in Tokyo’s business district. Growing more than 100 plants using hydroponics, climate control, and flourescent light reflected by the silver foil paper walls, the farm provides produce to restaurants in the building.
Although underground and out of sight, the farm seeks to reconnect urban dwellers with food production, demonstrating that there is a place for it in the city as well. The project is interesting as a new architectural typology, using the systems and space of the building to provide food for its inhabitats.
