Urban Agri_Polis is a new visionary city concept that seeks to regenerate a sustainable relationship between urban city life and agricultural production. Urban Agri_Polis is a fusion between two worlds; it is a place where urbanity meets rural agricultural production, where the grey concrete meets the green nature and where the pulsating city dweller meets the reality of the farmers’ everyday life. Urban Agri_Polis seeks to promote a balanced harmony between the build environment and agricultural production - supporting each other in harmony and in respect each other existence. The title of the project; Urban Agri_ Polis defines the combination of urbanity defined by the dense city structure, agriculture which is defined as commercial agricultural production and polis that refers to the pulsating life of the urban metropolis. Urban Agri-Polis is a vision for London Thames Gateway that seeks to illustrate the spatial and environmental consequences of integrating agricultural activity within the boundary of Greater London. By integrating a food-production strategy to the London Thames Gateway, London will establish itself as a promoter, or as a centre for agriculture and food excellence; a sustainable blueprint for other towns and cities throughout the world to adopt.
