Abstract

This paper reviews existing urban farms and studies the opportunity to integrate
agriculture into the high rise building in city of Bangkok. The consumption behaviors of
300 consumers aged between 26-36 years old who work in city of Bangkok are collected
with questionnaires. The design methodology is applied in two high rise buildings and the
payback period of the farm projects in the proposed buildings are analyzed. The result
shows consumers who have healthy life styles prefer consuming fresh fruits and vegetables
together with meats but do not like growing plants for consuming by themselves. Two mixedused
residential buildings with supermarket integrated vegetables farms are designed
in two locations of Bangkok. The farm products are found adequate for residences and for
selling. The payback period of the agricultural farms are within five years.
