The Area del Futuro -- translated to Area of the Future -- is an incredible new farm pavilion, designed by the famed design practice of Carlo Ratti Associati, that is intended to make it possible for visitors to not just learn about the benefits of hydroponic cultivation but actually participate themselves by planting seeds before tracking the growth of their plant remotely by way of a companion smartphone app.

The pavilion lets visitors visit a hydroponic vegetable garden designed to enable them to witness all stages of the hydroponic growth process, while also planting a seed of a vegetable species of their choice.

Ultimately, this innovative farm pavilion intelligently embraces interactive design in order to spread word about the benefits of hydroponic farming in a proactive rather than passive manner.
