Vertical farms could provide low-income neighbourhoods with access to fresh produce. Creative agency Framlab has proposed building modular growing areas in Brooklyn. The conceptual Glasir project comprises a stack of greenhouse-like modules. They could be built in various locations across the New York borough where Framlab’s research has found that 20 per cent of the population are food-insecure. The system would use aeroponics, a process for cultivating plants in which crops are grown in mist environment rather than soil.
