Dublin City Council presented the brief to our class as aspeculative design project to investigate what issues the community in Clonburris will face in the future.
We chose to create a community based co-operative farm designed to tackle social issues in Ireland by giving local people authority over their own food and creating social interaction in and a sense of pride in the community.
Through Acre, residents can learn skills and learn the latest technology to grow sustainably and bring the neighbourhood together.
