Regent Park
Urban Farm

This thesis project identifies issues with the global food network, identifying how architecture can be designed in order to consider food sovereignty. The project looks at Regent Park in Toronto’s East end, a neighbourhood with a vast history of food sovereignty dating back to the mid-1800’s when the area was known as South Cabbagetown. The architectural solution proposed is an urban farm that prioritizes education in association with other community-led programs; looking at the food system in a holistic way, from production through consumption to disposal. The thesis looks to establish a typology by setting out principles that re-imagine how future cities can use design to increase their sustainability and resiliency by better integrating food sovereignty within urban environments.
