Abstract

The current state of agricultural production is experiencing the impact of globalization, increased competition, suffers from limited resources, so the innovative nature of its reproduction process is an important condition for ensuring its stability and sustainable development at this stage. The disproportion between the growing population of the planet and the biosphere’s opportunities, which in the near future will lead to a shortage of agricultural land, is a prerequisite for the development of vertical agriculture. This concept is aimed at providing the population with food, and some industries with raw materials, using new technological and architectural solutions of using vertical surfaces. The logic of vertical farming is simple: produce more food in smaller areas. This article describes examples of the implementation of vertical farms’ projects around the world, where they are an integral part of the modern urban economy of the XXI century.

Key words: the problem of hunger; urbanization; innovative technologies; effective production of food; distinctive feature of vertical farms; green esthetics.
