Addressing the need to provide the people of Detroit with fresh produce, the Agricultural Manufacturing Complex applies large scale industrial process to the popular notion of urban farming. Through the use of the assembly line, crops are planted, grown, and harvested in an environment devoid of pesticides, toxic runoff, combine emissions, or the threat of an early freeze. As Detroit attempts to re-invent the manner in which it exists in today’s post-Fordist America, this project presents a possible path to that re-invention by providing the downtown area with an environmentally sustainable model for industrial growth.
