The Urban Agriculture Avant Garde

Urban Agriculture design is a small, but growing, area of specialization for North America's landscape architects. Abbagail Taddei looks at eight firms that are leading the way.

"There are few landscape architecture firms today that can say Urban Agriculture Design is on their shortlist of services offered," says Taddei. "Most firms are capable of designing a productive space, of course, whether or not they can say they specialize in this area of design is another matter. Below are eight North American Landscape Architecture firms that are leading the way through their own advocacy and stellar Urban Agriculture projects."

Among her picks are EOA (Elmslie Osler Architecture), a New York-based form that has a distinct division specializing in urban agriculture called Grow Studio, and Crop Upa consulting firm from Charleston, SC "that specializes in creating 'food projects in urban areas.'"
