Queen's architecture students turn abandoned mill into flourishing urban farm

Queen’s architecture students have been working alongside the Biospheric Foundation in Salford over the last 12 months to design and implement a multilevel aquaponic system within an old disused mill.
The aim of the project was to determine whether the system could be implemented and successfully operated into an ex-industrial building. The design consists of twelve fish tanks in the upper floor of the mill, adjacent to window growing systems and experimental filtration systems. Additional growing systems are housed within a large polytunnel, located on the rooftop. The system is capable of producing 500 crops and 10kg fish per week, resulting in a very short return on investment.
