Inspired by C J Lim’s Food Parliament, the project reimagines  water infrastructures to put food production at the core of the city’s functioning. Using the production of food as a medium to link the flow of energy and nutrients from biotic to abiotic, the project hopes to prioritize the link between people and their environment. Injecting green space and air in the city, the intervention enhances livability while economizing production. Appropriating the existing built fabric into the design, it situtates a multitude of functions and creating employment opportunities and fostering community engagement. Fundamentally and most importantly, the project speculates closed cyclic systems of sustenance making the city a closed loop regenerative system centered around two resources most essential for survival -  water and food.
