Future is coming! As the world's human population grows, we're reducing the amount of agricultural areas and forests. That's why some architects are working on concepts for sustainable skyscrapers and vertical agricultural buildings. Here are some of the most interesting plans for the merging of the city and the farm.

All credits to Vince Miklos of io9.com - I just used his article to make a slick Powerpoint presentation.

Here are some of the most interesting plans for the merging of the city and the farm. Future is coming!
  3. 3. What’s the difference? Big box farms Vertical farms
  4. 4. London Farm Tower BRANDON MARTELLA The hydroponic floors can recycle the greenhouse air, so it can help to the city to breathe. It has an agricultural capacity of 1 million cubic feet, (28000 cubic meters) and it's enough to produce the 20 percent of London's total food demands. The London Farm Tower isn't just for agriculture, but for education, markets and labs with an extra 1 million sq feet of (100.000 sqm) usable area.
  5. 5. Vertical Life Tower JARED MOORE The living, green facade hides a huge amount of green areas, homes and a vertical farm on the top floors.
  6. 6. The Dragonfly for NY VINCENT CALLEBAUT The 600 m high vertical farm building was planned to New York City's Roosevelt Island. It could contain 28 different farms for vegetables, meat, fruit and others. The building would be self-sufficient because of the solar panels and wind power.
  7. 7. Toronto Sky Farm GORDON GRIFF Another great vertical farm design by Gordon Griff from 2011 for Toronto. It provides enough food for 35000 people per year from the 59 stories.
