Industrial farming can be hard on the environment, with the global food system responsible for up to one-third of all greenhouse gases emitted. On top of this, there is a growing realization that producing food locally helps cut down food miles, which in turn reduces carbon dioxide emissions. A number of recent innovations, such as a farm in a box to modular greenhouses designed for urban rooftops have been aimed at reducing food miles. With this in mind, Swedish startup Plantagon Agritechture and Sweco Architects have developed a 16-story tall ‘plantscraper’ – a massive vertical greenhouse intended to allow large-scale organic farming in urban areas, using less energy and with a smaller carbon footprint than conventional farming.
