The Living Tower that Cool Hunting is featuring has a very similar concept to the EDITT Towers that PRADE featured back in April - only taken to the extreme. Instead of a skyscraper incorporating living flora in its design, this is actually a vertical farm, meant to address the issues cities will have in the future with providing food for themselves.

Very interesting - although we are miles away from a time when this is more cost efficient than just shipping food in from the developing world, and we all know that it is the market that generally fuels the adoption of innovations, not the other way round.
