Abstract

This thesis proposes the use of urban agriculture as a tool to address three global challenges related to population
growth in cities; densification, climate change and health risk by studying the history and benefits of urban agriculture,
it is possible to understand the benefits in better integrating urban agriculture into new urban infrastructure, particularly
in high-density housing areas. These benefits include; better living conditions, reduced food transportation, stormwater
management and strong links between communities.
The concept of urban agriculture in green infrastructure was tested with a case study of the proposed Törnrosen
development in Rosengård, Malmö, to give a specific context to the theory, in which were used global examples of
innovative urban agriculture projects for inspiration, alongside details of the current possibilities of urban green
infrastructure technology and analysis of the study area and creative design solutions are developed to find out what
is possible.
The project finds that when green infrastructure is integrated into the Törnrosen tower, additional benefits to the
residents and broader a community is likely to increase, if it is adapted to support urban agriculture, and alongside
other urban agriculture community projects in the neighbourhood to have a more significant impact on the quality of
life in Rosengård. The use of specific urban agriculture infrastructure will depend on location, type of users, the
intention of the garden and stakeholders involved in the gardens. The design principals made to design and evaluate
the community gardens could be used for other projects with similarities in the future.
