Oogst (harvest)

There are a lot of innovative designers and architects, like William McDonough one of the founding fathers of Cradle to Cradle, that are working on solutions to make housing and urban area’s self-supporting, self-sufficient an more sustainable.
Now Dutch (multi) design agency Tjep. initiated an investigation into new developments in the agricultural sector. What they came across were radical ideas with regards to self-sufficiency, capable of getting us quite a bit closer to the concept of a sustainable society.

It’s an intriguing way of looking at the possibility’s of bringing urban and agricultural world together.

They developed 3 Oogst concepts (Oogst stands for ‘harvest’ in Dutch): Oogst 1, Oogst 100 Community and Oogst 1000 Wonderland.

Oogst 1 Solo is a house for one person that provides its resident with food, energy, heat and oxygen. In principle, one could live in Oogst 1 Solo without ever having to leave the house.

Oogst Community 100 is a self-sufficient farm for 100 people. The residents are all farmers. In the central greenhouse, all necessary crops are grown, the surrounding fields are for livestock.

Oogst 1000 Wonderland is a self-sufficient farm, restaurant, hotel and amusement park for 1,000 people per day. All food for the restaurant comes from the central structure and directly adjacent fields. Oogst 1000 combines extreme fun with extreme usefulness. One can see this amusement park as a huge people processor. Hotel guests are also the farmers, when you work, you can stay for free.
