Title of Work

Grow Tank


"2.4 billion extra people, no more land: how will we feed the world in 2050?"

Aquaponics is a symbiotic growing method using fish waste to nourish plants; urban farms of the future will incorporate this compact technology. This will enable food growth on a mass scale within a small foot print of land, to feed the increasing population within urban centres.

The “grow tank” provides city dwellers with a compact indoor aquaponics kit that allows them to maintain the rituals of buying fresh food products, with additional rewards of growing your own food.
