In this competition, we encourage participants to come up with visionary concepts for a vertical farm in the urban context – only 1 drawing, absolute freedom of scale. Designers are asked to design a vertical farm integrated into the urban fabric, while providing a sustainable solution. By focusing on the food production in the urban environment, designers can also come up with innovative and creative solutions to problems such as space limitations and environmental degradation.
