Urban Sheep Farm
Location: Nottingham, UK
Award: 5th Year Best Design Portfolio
The natural process of breeding and nurturing sheep, has in modern times, become surrounded
by a support network of mechanical interventions.
Traditionally agriculture was, almost exclusively, a rural activity however in the 21st century, it
seems appropriate that cities should feed back into food production chain. The daily frequency
of city life however, differs from that of traditional farm setting, most significantly the city cycle
does not adhere to natural seasonal changes, instead the city has evolved to even out such
influences and expends a large amount of energy to provide an artificial constant in which
demand is met on 24/7/365 basis.
