Today Open Biotecture went to meet up with Hariyo Chowk. Our respective teams discussed enthusiastically about future cooperation. Discover Hario Chowk with us:
Hariyo Chowk, meaning “green square,” is an educational space for sustainable design and urban farming in Kathmandu. In Spring of 2012 Sattya Media Arts Collective planted an initiative to transform a courtyard into a modern adaptation of the traditional chowk. We’ve since blossomed into a community hub for learning urban greening strategies.
As Kathmandu rapidly urbanizes, there are fewer and fewer green spaces left in the city once known for its strong tradition of urban farming. Issues of air quality, street pollution, and electricity scarcity are escalating.
By teaching solutions specific to the region’s resources, Hariyo Chowk is working to empower people to forge a more sustainable future.
Our Rooftop Farming projects is one we will especially work at developing together. You will find more on their website and hopefully you will find more updates from us in collaboration with Hariyo Chowk.
