City as edible infraestructure.

“So the food situation is totally mad. The mindset seemed to be that cities are for people to live and work in and the countryside is for growing food. However, things are changing fast, […] planners and architects are starting to accord for food systems the same priority as transport or housing”.
John  Thackara, “Low Entropy Urbanism”, MEGACITIES,
010 Publishers, Rotterdam, 2010

Keywords: food culture, food production, urban agriculture, urban design, water collection, research and educational programs, resources management, citizen initiatives, social cohesion, entertainment, creative business, healthy cooking, etc.

The development of all these urban strategies, designed through cartographies and geographical, urban, climatic, ecological or social maps, will lead to a new edible city concept: the geography of food.
