Designer Davin Tanasa is attempting to start a farming revolution in the heart of urban Texas with his conceptual Dallas Skyfarm. The Dallas Skyfarm is vertical farm designed to harness the power of wind to grow crops.

The Dallas Skyfarm uses a shallow hydroponic system to grow food on higher levels while trees are grown on the ground floor. It is covered in wind turbines providing free and eco-friendly power. As open land continues to be monopolized for housing and other developments, you should expect to see designs like the Dallas Skyfarm become increasingly more commonplace. Tanasa's design could also help communities wrest control of their food away from factory farms by providing people with a local farm and market all in one easy-to-reach location.
