dc.description.abstractThis investigation examines the relationships between three communities on the Brooklyn Waterfront in New York. The three areas lack connectivity to the greater network of fresh produce provided by farmer’s markets across New York, but the effect is stronger on Farragut Houses, a disadvantaged community who rely on poorly stocked supermarkets and corner stores for groceries, while facing segregation from this part of Brooklyn. Inspiration draws from personal observation during a year spent working in this part of Brooklyn, and was developed through research on urban agriculture and the socioeconomics of DUMBO, Vinegar Hill, and Farragut. The research suggests a project that aims to break down social barriers and unite the neighbourhoods through the activities and education involved in cultivating fresh and healthy food. This is accomplished through the phased design of a building located in Vinegar Hill, one half-block north of Farragut, to help facilitate this synergy between communities.en_US
