CBD Organic Farm

Location: Glendale, Arizona

Year Completed: Unbuilt

Client: cbDiversified

Ibarra Rosano was charged with the complete visioning of this unique 10-acre urban space within a 76-acre master planned community for the city of Glendale, Arizona by acclaimed architect Will Bruder. As Central Park is to New York, this organic farm was conceptualized as the green space for this community. The multi-faceted project, inclusive of a public market, 3 restaurants, an artist residence, organic farm and community center, is a model of integrated sustainable building and living practices. It is a space designed to receive office workers and residents in a space for community engagement, recreation and healthy living.

Ibarra Rosano worked with an elite team of sustainability consultants and engineers, nationally recognized landscape architects, innovative traffic and civil engineers, organic garden consultants, financial consultants and estimators.

These creative project stakeholders were brought together into one room, and in a series of brainstorming charrettes, were encouraged to aggregate their individual diverse expertise toward a common goal of maximizing the sustainability of every project element. This process gave birth to many innovations such as: using parking garages as power plants, using streets to store water, using sewer systems to capture heat for other systems, creating a circular food system of growing, consuming, and composting within the development.
