Above the Pavement—The Farm!, the second title in the Inventory Books series, explores the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and food though WORKac's Public Farm 1 (P.F.1) project, installed in 2008 in the courtyard of P.S.1, in Queens, New York. This book narrates the process of designing and building a working urban farm capable of generating its own power, recycling rainwater, and cultivating more than 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables, all in a 30 feet high structure built out of industrial cardboard tubes.
Inventory Books is a platform for the synthesis of textual and visual research on transformations in urban spaces and culture. Edited by Adam Michaels and published by Princeton Architectural Press, the series presents rigorous content in an accessible format for a diverse public.
