Residents of Chicago may one day get to enjoy farm quality food from within their city, thanks to 'Feeder' from Studio Gang. 'Feeder' gets its name from the Ohio highway feeder ramp in Chicago that Studio Gang hopes to turn into a greenhouse someday.

The idea is a genius one -- take a rarely used, flat stretch of infrastructure and turn it into an urban farm. A project like 'Feeder' from Studio Gang would cut down on the costs and CO2 produced by having to haul food in from the country, and it would be a model for other cities to follow.
