Description

Vertical Farming is defined as a highly industrialized year round cultivation method for food production, adaptable for multiple crop types, where the verticalized building typology, its programme and functions primarily focus on optimium plant growth. The building is seen as a structural element of the urban ecosystem. In addition to food production, the Vertical Farm must incorporate elements of the food sector which, at present, are spatially detached from each other on a global scale, something which has a severe impact on energy consumption and the environment.
