Aprilli Design Studio has created a concept for an Urban Skyfarm

By 2050, the world’s population is estimated to reach 9.7 billion people. Already, 795 million people go to bed hungry each evening. Catching up to – and alleviating – the problem of world hunger won’t be easy, but the task might be realized sooner if innovative tree-shaped vertical farms are invested in and constructed in the future.

According to Fast CoExist, the Urban Skyfarm is a giant skyscraper that was designed to mimic the look of a tree. Conceptualized by Aprilli Design Studio, the trunk is an indoor hydroponics farm for greens. Where leaves would be, lightweight decks are constructed to grow plenty of fruits and vegetables. At the top of the structure exist solar panels and wind turbines; these renewable energy structures will generate enough energy to power the entire operation!


In addition to growing 24 acres worth of fruits and vegetables, the Urban Skyfarm will also capture rainwater and filter it through a constructed wetland before returning it to a nearby stream. It really is one of the freshest designs we’ve so far seen!
