Cities rely on farms to feed citizens but require a vast amount of land and water, which is something the 'Glasir' project takes into account to help change. Developed by Framlab, the farming system is achieved using a series of modules that allow for food cultivation in small urban areas and are designed to look like cubic trees in the city landscape.
The different modules include the Growth Modules, Production Modules and the Access Modules, which work together to support the growth of food, the structure and the cultivators who tend to the modern farm. The 'Glasir' project is supported by artificial intelligence (AI) that utilizes sensors in order to continuously monitor the environment and adapt accordingly.
The 'Glasir' Project by Framlab Enables Food Farming in Urban Areas
1. Modular Urban Farming - The food industry can utilize modular and stackable farming systems within urban areas to increase sustainable food production.
2. AI-supported Agriculture - The integration of artificial intelligence with farming systems can improve environmental monitoring and crop yields for the agriculture industry.
3. Vertical Farming - Vertical farming systems can enable space-efficient cultivation of crops in urban areas for increased local food production.
1. Agriculture - The agriculture industry can benefit from implementing modular and AI-supported farming systems for sustainable and efficient food production.
2. Urban Planning - Urban planners can integrate modular and vertical farming concepts into urban design to increase local food production and improve the livability of cities.
3. Smart Cities - Smart cities can leverage AI-supported urban farming systems as a sustainable solution for local food production and reducing environmental impact.
