Futuristic Floating Farms
on 16 June 2015
A rapidly expanding global population, combined with water scarcity in prevalent farming areas make for a grim future. To address impending food shortages, Javier F. Ponce and Jakub Dycha have designed a futuristic floating farm that isn’t too far from reality. The three-story structure incorporates aquaculture, hydroponics and photovoltaics to sustainably and dependably produce a range of crops and fish that, in theory, could feed entire cities—as long as they’re located near a fresh water source. Though it's still just a concept, some feel it's a viable alternative to land-locked farms.
