Vertical farms in the cities of the future
Languages of publication
The economic and environmental conditions, which change at an unparalleled pace, bring about a search for new agricultural technologies. The increasing human population needs new methods of food production. For the time being, open and closed multistorey vertical farms meant for urban areas, making one of the elements of urban agriculture, lie mostly in the realm of futuristic ideas. Designed objects present unprecedented architectonic forms. They are energy self-sufficient, use renewable energy sources, recycle water and other materials. We must ask the following question: Is the existence and development of the earth’s civilization possible in the decades to come without the implementation of the (so far) visionary concepts of food production? Agriculture in tall buildings located in the city is the measure of the dreams of scientists and architects all over the world. Nowadays, it is becoming reality.
