Hydroterrium proposes a multi-functional farming system within the White Bay Power Station in Sydney CBD. In response to the themes of industrial evolution, globalisation and sustenance, the intent of the research project is to explore the future of radical farming techniques by deconstructing the fundamental methods of agriculture. Using the urban city as a catalyst for environmental thinking, the project aims to delve into the farm-to-table analogy with a cradle-to-grave philosophy in the hope for a better future for both the natural environment and man-kind. Adopting a phytoremediation and biomimicry approach, water is used as a method to imitate the natural exterior landscape and an integral component of the built environment.
