New Farms for EXPO: interview with Jaap Draaisma (Urban Resort)

The “New Farms for Expo” initiative aims at developing a toolbox for the reuse – whether durable or temporary – of vacant buildings in industrialized cities, chiefly Milan: by doing so, it aims at focusing its efforts on strategies
which enable both municipal public and private stakeholders to push such reactivation processes. “New Farms for Expo” focuses on vacant municipal farmhouses, and deals with two intertwining topics: on the one hand, the agricultural heritage of the territory of Milan, and the contemporary issues related to the agricultural production, food security and metabolism of European cities on the other.
