As cities grow ever bigger, and more rural land gets taken over, it will become more important to grow food within the city.

But we’re also fascinated by the new wave of architects and city planners who are taking to vertical farming by using hydroponics to incorporate wildlife into buildings.

What do you think? Is this a passing fad, or could this be the real future of urban food production?
