Tetris Farm


A sustainable, modular farm that can be effectively deployed worldwide

Tetris Farm


A sustainable, modular farm that can be effectively deployed worldwide
Once deployed from a container, the contents can fit together and be stacked, with the central core providing the needed utilities and circulation to build a working sustainable farm capable of growing a variety of vegetables and fruits.

Agriculture and the farming industry play a significant role in our natural environments being destroyed and strained to provide the sustenance humanity needs.

The Tetris Farm is devised to try and address this problem, by utilising current state of the art grow-box technology in an adaptive, modular and nomadic built form. Tetris Farm containerises this system allowing farming to be far denser than conventional methods with the utilities capable of being off-grid or plugged into an existing grid.

The architecture is designed to be easily transported using existing infrastructure and easily assembled with the necessary access and environmental controls of a conventional building. Its adaptive capabilities will make it a robust solution to growing food in a variety of climates and conditions in a far less expansive footprint, literally and environmentally.
