Ghana Farm 2.0

Ghana Farm 2.0

01. Introduction

How can we design a Farm that shows beauty in simplicity and expresses a certain sense of functionality? Moreover, how can we produce an evolutionary farm that is pioneering in Ghana? Our project Farm 2.0 aims to propose a possible solution according to Ghana’s concept and aesthetic design. We are creating a closed system that is eco-efficient.
Our design is inspired by the symbolic shape of the Ashanti people; a pattern based on a combination of square and triangle, otherwise of solidity and porosity.
Our project is a self-sufficient farm in terms of food and energy. The high potential of the site imposes a project on us in the future and to do this, we propose in addition a methanation unit, fish and animal farming as well as a possibility of project extension.
