  •  How does a skyscraper supply light? (0+ / 0-)

    Ye olde sunlight supplies the energy that makes plants grow.  There's only so much sunlight per square meter anywhere.  That design (expensive to simply build) must use artificial light because there's simply not enough sunlight for that footprint to grow more than a couple stories of crops.

    Figure out how much a square foot of that design would simply cost to build, let alone maintain.  Essentially that is literally a factory farm and it would have to churn out either a LOT of food or a very high value product in order to be economical.
