A scheme that sought to create interface between the transient student residents and the permanent elderly residents of a gated community through urban horti/agriculture. This involved phased interventions using closed loop, carbon neutral systems around a user-configured community hub in the form of a modular framework. And we provided some provision for Tongji University's agricultural researchers.
