Facing the current challenges of cities growing, land consumption and climate changes, architects at Barcelona-based Forward Thinking Architecture believe projects like their “Smart Floating Farms” can help change some of the existing paradigms which have led us to the present situation and open new possibilities which can improve the quality of human life and the environment. Based on a Floating Platform Multi-layered strategy which combines Aquaculture(fish), Hydroponics-Aeroponics (crops) and Photovoltaics(solar power & other renewable energies), these floating farms can be located close to areas where food is more needed and potentially become automated Farm Clusters run by the use of IT technologies/software. The project can adapt its dimensions to the local food production needs and can be located close to many mega-cities or dense populated areas with water access (sea-lakes-rivers).
