Harvest Green: Vertical Farm by Romses Architects wins Competition : TreeHugger: “Romses Architects recently won a competition held by the City of Vancouver to address climate change plans and to guide greener and denser development, reducing carbon emissions for the future. They did this with a vertical farm high rise design.”

(Via Treehugger.)

So does it make sense to do so? Is it feasible? Can it be a completely closed loop?

I just hope there’s no mildew.
