Vertical Farms As Big As Skyscrapers To Add Greenery To Seoul’s Skyline
Urban Skyfarm would be a carbon zero food production facility open to all.
Vertical farming is one way to make use of space in urban environments, but Brooklyn-based Aprilli Design Studio has come up with an even better idea. Their Urban Skyfarm is a hydroponic farm, air filter, source of renewable energy, and a community garden where people can learn about permaculture or simply relax amongst some greenery. The prototype was designed for the central business district of Seoul, South Korea, and features hundreds of lightweight farming platforms arranged into the shape of a giant tree.
