The Urban Skyfarm that could transform our cities

Innovation Logo By David Nield of Innovation | Slide 1 of 9

This revolutionary idea is both prize-winning and highly innovative

The Urban Skyfarm stretches 525 feet (160 metres) above the city floor and is home to 143,700 square feet (13,350 square metres) of hydroponic soil-free farmland. It's an ambitious vision, and it's just picked up a Futuristic Design prize in the prestigious A' Design Award Competition. Conceived by the Aprilli Design Studio in Brooklyn, the Skyfarm is intended for a site in downtown Seoul, South Korea, though construction hasn't yet been given the go-ahead. As well as producing and distributing food, the intricate tower also improves the surrounding environment with a range of integrated water treatment, solar energy and recycling features.
