Seed to Eat is a technologically advanced agricultural installation.
The installation was designed organically to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Plants are nurtured through an aeroponic system. As a result, it requires 75% less water than traditional growing methods.
Each tower is sustainable and modular, and designed to feed four families all year round.
The green pavilion is designed and manufactured by FabLab Irbid’s team.
The pavilion works as a solution that utilizes digital technologies to create usable outdoor gathering spaces.
The nature-inspired design is also powered by solar energy.
The solar energy provides lighting and features an automated irrigation system for the plants.
This modular greenhouse typology is functioning temporarily as shelter for a food stand. The food stand also includes a compost system and grey water filter.
This modular greenhouse typology is functioning temporarily as an information booth and public seating space.
The booth is integrated with growing installations that are highly water efficient and low-maintenance.
Sharek Bitbarek is an initiative dedicated to fighting food waste through design, social impact, and inclusion.
The platform aspires to bring communities together and turn generations of ‘food wasters’ into better recyclers.
'Sharek Bitbarek' uses food waste as a stepping stone to create a new sustainability movement in Jordan.
'The Sea of Possibilities' was inspired by Amman Design Week's theme of possibilities.
