Skyscraper Farms for a Future Manhattan

As the world's population continues to grow and cities become even more congested and resources dissipate, it might be time to  start looking at remedies for the future. Eric Vergne's Dystopian Farm Project envisions a New York City comprised of skyscraper farms that harness the latest technology to create a self-sustaining food source for the entire city.

"Designed for the Hudson Yard area of Manhattan, Eric Vergne’s Dystopian Farm aims to provide New York with a sustainable food source while creating a dynamic social space that integrates producers with consumers. Based upon the 'material logic of plant mechanics', the biomorphic skyscraper is modeled after the plant cells of ferns and provides space for farms, residential areas, and markets. These organic structures will harness systems such as airoponic watering, nutrient technology and controlled lighting and CO2 levels to meet the food demands of future populations."

Seeds, Soil, Sun and Water. There is not much more that you need for agriculture. I have my doubts about getting water to the top of that thing. I have no doubt that there is not enough sunlight.
