On November 9, 2016, DEDODESIGN Architects presented Edible Cities Pop-Up Event curated by Nunzia Carbone.
Residents of Lane 275 on Anfu Lu actively took part in a pop up event involving food, art, education, urbanism and lane life. Families and children were in conversation with designers and teachers from Tongji University. Edible plants wall installations and latex balloons filled with seeds were installed in the lane and released into the sky.
Later, at Capsule Shanghai, visitors received seeds envelopes and cocktails made with ingredients from hydroponic farms in Shanghai.
EDIBLE CITIES is a response to the food challenges due to the world’s urbanization process and environmental issues. Nunzia Carbone and DEDODESIGN ARCHITECTS(DDA) aim to re-design the underused spaces of Shanghai and transform them into functional green spaces for urban farming where people can grow their own food and participate in the life of their community.
