Cross Cultivation is a proposal for a small New Orleans house that challenges its inhabitants to actively engage in their own sustenance via the re-exteriorization of domestic spaces. In other words, there is a mini garden/farm growing right underneath the main structure of the home! The project took second place in the 2010 USGBC New York Natural Talent Design Competition.

    I just hope to have understood this the way it was meant.

    Sweet! That’s a great idea. Use the land under the house for growing food. I might do that when I build just to get more usable area.
