Futures in Biotech 58: The Vertical Farm

19 April 2010

I joined Marc Pelletier on futures-in-biotechepisode 58 of Futures in Biotech for a conversation with Dickson Despommier. We talked about some of Dickson’s passions – eukaryotic parasites and vertical farming. The idea for placing hydroponic farms in skyscrapers, about to be realized, was conceived by one of Professor Despommier’s classes at Columbia University.

    Bucky Fuller had a design for that type of farming. It's either in Synergetics or Critical Path.
