Office work in Symbiosis with Nature, Tokyo
Located in downtown Tokyo is a nine story office building for the Japanese recruitment company, Pasona HQ. The company has transformed the space into a 16,500 square meter urban farm and are growing over 200 species of fruits, vegetables and rice.
By having such a unique farm in the city, Pasona strives to improve the well-being and working conditions of its employees. Moreover, they want to encourage and educate new farmers, while exposing urban inhabitants to food during the growing stages. Employees of the farm are also encouraged to take part in the care and cultivation of its crops, which are then eaten onsite and prepared in the office cafeteria.
